For those that are interested... I just downloaded x-develop and  
installed it on my 10.4 box w/ Mono 1.1.17

There was a thread a while back about os/x code editors that are  
compatible with Mono w/ all the nice intellisense features and such.

X-Develop works quite well, albeit a little slowly on my dual 2.5Ghz  
G5 powermac. You have the option to select vs.net keybindings as  
well, which helps out. I couldn't get the debugger to work, but I  
will try tomorrow. Intellisense/Code Completion is a little 'rough' .  
I prefer the UI of the VS.NET intellisense. It just seems cleaner.  
There are also some quirks such as the editor refusing to code- 
complete if casing is different.

All in all, it was a pretty good experience.

Now, the $299 price tag may be a little steep for an OS/X compliant  
IDE. perhaps if they were to remove the source control and  
refactoring functionality, they could produce a 'lite version' with a  
sub-100$ price tag.
