I use the yum repositories for Fedora Core 1 and Fedora Core 2.

When everything works, the yum repositories approach is very easy. (How
hard could it be to type "yum install mono"?) My problems with the
install are all related to broken/unsatisfied/missing dependencies.

If it cuts down on the dependency related issues, sure! But I still
prefer the yum repositories mainly because I install my other software
using it. Since I install everything anyway, it really doesn't make any
difference to me if two packages or thirty packages are installed.
Though I have to admit that it is way cooler to watch thirty packages
scroll by in yum.
