Hi, Matt!

When I've started playing with Mono I have also looked around
for an IDE. I've tried Eclipse and (IMHO) it is t-o-o-o-o heavy and it is
much more Java oriented than I want. My favorite Midnight
Commander did not work very well with huge number of files and
folders in a typical C# projects (and Mono in particular). I am not a big
fun of Vi/Emacs thus it was not a best option for me.

Finaly I decided to practice with Mono/C#/Gtk# and write "yet another
IDE" :) I did it for myself but if you are interested, feel free to try it:


You would need fresh Gtk# from CVS trunk (which requires GTK >= 2.2) 
and Mono 0.26 (or from CVS trunk). Also, I use gtksourceview library thus
compilation/installation process is lisghtly more complex than usual
(you would need internet connection to get grksourceview tarball):

        ./configure [options]
        cd src/widgets/sources
        make get-source-code
        cd ../../..
        make install

I am using this on RedHat 9 with stock Gnome/GTK but it should work
on other Linux systems too.

With best regards,
