[Mono-dev] Mono/Linux and MbUnit, NMock, NCover, VSTS

For unit tests we use both Nunit and VS2005, we put out tests in a common
class.  These common classes are wrapped with either Nunit or VS2005.  Thus
tests run on either platform.

Hi there

We are deciding on a unit test framework for our crossplatform C# efforts.

I have been looking at a number of frameworks, but it is unclear to me, to 
what extent they "work" with Mono/Linux. I am looking for other Mono/Linux 
users experience with these frameworks.

We know about nUnit (which, AFAICT, works very well in Mono/Linux), but all 
the rage seems to be about MbUnit these days. Does MbUnit work in
Some of it seems to be tied to "Com 1.5"?

Similarely about NMock - looks great - does it work with Mono/Linux? Any 
experience out there?

NCover for code coverage also looks great. Again - how about Mono/Linux?

And finally, some of our Windows developers fancy the unit testing support
Microsoft Visual Studio Team System. I am sceptical about this. It is a bit 
hard for me to resolve, but it would appear, that this is tied very closely 
to MSVSTS? Does this work with Mono/Linux? Are there any license problems?

Thanks in advance for all input!
