Did somebody say debugger?  :)

I'd say thats the quickest trip to Mono fame: a debugger integrated into 
MonoDevelop.  Microsoft VisualStudio has provided excellent integrated 
debugger support for a long time.  Many Windows developers view the lack 
of an integrated and easy to use debugger as a showstopper for 
developing on a *nix platform.

Now if ASP.NET support could be polished up and MonoDevelop had 
integrated xsp/ASP.NET debugging - that'd be huge.  VisualStudio's 
ASP.NET debugging while powerful, is extremely flaky, so its an area 
where Mono could even beat the competition.

Just the $0.02 of a mono-devel lurker... feel free to ignore.  :)
