I don't think so jadro.
Mono runs programs built using .net bytecode. C# for example. Which happen to be .exec files.
That is not the same as running good old x86 binary Windows executables.
See this topic about mono. I do not know about mono but this is topic:
The implication here is that *IF* you think of .NET as what Windows development is today, then an argument can be made that being able to run .NET stuff is as good as and/or equivalent to being able to run Windows EXEs on any platform that is able to do that (e.g., say, the Pi, with Mono installed).
Of course, this pretty much misses the whole point - since most of the time when people ask about wanting to run Windows on the Pi, what they are actually talking about is being able to run some old, pre-.NET code - i.e., actual Windows/x86 binaries. Not .NET programs...
