1.1.6 is good enough for most apps....
Why must everything in our society be so 'instant'? Lets give them some
time to prepare packages for al these different distributions....

You said it took 12 hours to install mono? I am a patient person, but 12
"It would have taken me as little as 2 to 3 hours..."

ergghh: that's also very long. An install of mono is maybe 10 minutes
work (ok that's maybe because gentoo has Peter Johanson who's a very
good maintainer for this) but It should not take longer then 1 hour on
other distributions.

A typical monodevelop build from svn is max. 5 minutes. The first time I
spent nearly an hour to find out everything about the svn repo and
things like .autogen.sh + options (boo, mono-debugger, java)

I do really suggest a tutorial about searching the web. (some persons
would say "STFW" but I remain patient...)

1 www.google.com
2 "mono anonymous svn"
3 http://svn.myrealbox.com/ 
or http://mono-project.com/AnonSVN ('official'?)

Is this difficult????
