I tend to use MS VS the most for .NET development, only because that
is what I am "used" to.  When writing something at home or outside of
work, and always make sure it builds using mono though, on my Linux

I haven't been able to get MonoDevelop working on my desktop at home
yet, so I can't say which IDE I think is faster. However,  I do think
VS 2005 performs much better than VS2003.

I do plan on getting Monodevelop up and running on my desktop though,
but it doesn't have gnome installed. Gnome didn't ship with my distro
( Slackware 10.2 ), and I have had less than perfect experiences with
using the Drop-line installer.
