[Mono-dev] Doing dev under win?

You can get Mono Tools for testing Mono on Windows. I haven't tried it 
in a while though, as I ran into many issues with its debugging support...

Alternatively, a command line just running mono --debug does the job. 
It's fairly compatible with MS.NET so you can just debug there and run 
on Mono.

If you mean developing *Mono*, I compile on Linux and copy that to 
Windows. Never been able to compile Mono in Windows, but the 
cross-compile works and that's sufficient.

For a VM download VirtualBox. Works great, and you can share a folder 
between the two for cross-compiling Mono.

Let me know if you have any other questions, be glad to help with 
whatever. I use Mono on Windows nearly every day, so :)
