Hi Martin,

I have some questions I hope you don't mind answering.

What do I need to do to get the debugger up and running on Linux?  What are
the requirements?
gtk# and gtk+ 2.0 I'm sure.  Do I need GNOME 2.0 too?

Can I debug various Mono class libraries with it, such as, System.Data
classes like DataSet?

Can it be used to debug code which uses unmanaged code via DllImport,
internal calls, or marshalling of data?

Can I use the debugger to debug GTK# applications on Mono?

Can I use the debugger to debug QT# applications on Mono?

Can the debugger be ported to other platforms, such as, Linux/PPC,
FreeBSD/i386, or dare I say Windows 2000?  If so, what would it take to port
the debugger to other platforms?

What features does debugger have?  How does this differ from other debuggers
out there?

What features would you look to see added to the debugger?
