Mono project offers .NET compatible set of tools, including among others a C# compiler and a Common Language Runtime. It runs on Linux, *BSD, Windows and other operating systems. From the article:

The FastCGI Mono Server was developed as part of the 2007 Google Summer of Code (http://code.google.com/soc/2007/) with the goal of increasing the availablity of ASP.NET and simplifying configuration. Requiring as little as zero command line options and supporting a large number of servers, the FastCGI Mono Server makes it simple to include ASP.NET on your server.
