Desktop Hero Lab is C++ (non .NET). Realm Works is .NET and could be any one of a number of languages (or a mix of them).

Could be anything. Objective-C was the main language for OS X and iOS for a long time, but many development systems, languages, and libraries have support for creating applications for those OSes.

Realm Works won't work with Mono; there are things Mono doesn't implement that Realm Works uses. The best (and quite possibly) only way to run Realm Works on a non-Windows system is by running Windows in a virtual machine.

Web-based versions of their applications are how they plan to support non-Windows OSes (and eventually all OSes, it seems.)
