[Mono-osx] Mono development on OS X without a debugger? (was Re: Mono on Leopard)

I have to agree.  I haven't used Visual Studio before hardly, until  
this year when I've been working exclusively on a C#/.Net 2 project  
under VS2005 and the debugger is fantastic.

Edit & Continue, when you are running tests that can go on for hours,  
is invaluable.  As is the simplicity you can inspect/change variable  
values etc.

That being said, logging still has its place (such as looking for  
timing holes in multi-threaded code), but until there is a decent  
development environment for C# available for the Mac, I'll stick to  
Objective-C and X-Code for Mac specific stuff, and all other projects  
will stay in VS 2005 under VMWare, and therefore will be Windows only.
