Side note:  On ubuntu 14.04, by far the best way to develop mono/C# is to install the monodevelop package.  Very powerful IDE with lots of good features.  If you develop on a mac, you could install monodevelop or Xamarin Studio.  If you develop on windows, it's probably best to use Visual Studio (there is a free version with some limitations that you may or may not care about) but monodevelop / Xamarin Studio is also available on windows.  If you want to test for normal windows compatibility for the sake of testing your application before you distribute it to your customers or end users who don't have development tools installed, it's probably best to use VS instead of MD/XS on windows, because mono's behavior deviates from the .NET behavior sometimes (that's the point of testing.)  Also if you install mono on windows, it will create several assemblies that are otherwise not available, so if you plan to distribute something, you should make sure you're aware and that's a conscious decision.
