These should all help you to see why NAnt might be a better option:


Running a continuous integration system using a system like Draco.NET (built
on NAnt/NDoc/NUnit) or even NAnt BuildServer is a one way of ensuring that
code quality is consistently high and that potential problem are detected as
quickly as possible. You can configure the system to build/test/check code
even as they are committed to your source control system.
