I'm from the Windows ASP.NET world & am just starting out with Linux & Mono.

I plan to develop & run ASP.NET applications on Linux with PostGreSql. I
would love suggestions on:

   1. Linux distributions: OpenSuse vs Ubuntu vs Fedora.
      - I installed OpenSuse 10.1 earlier. After a kernel update &
      reboot, the UI crashed & I had trouble recovering my data.
Finally switched
      to Ubuntu, which worked without issues for me, but is lagging
behind in Mono
      2. ASP.NET Server technology for deployment: Apache vs FastCGI
   vs XSP. I keep hearing from friends that Apache is hard to configure, and my
   attempt at installing mod_mono on Ubuntu 64 failed. Any pointers will be
   3. Development tool for Linux: MonoDevelop vs Eclipse. If Eclipse,
   which C# plugin is best?
   4. Can someone update the roadmap for Mono 2.0 please; past dates are
   shown? http://www.mono-project.com/Mono_Project_Roadmap
