Don't tell me that...

Yes folks, you're all asking for Qt + Mono, which is already there, but 
needs to be spread and to have good documentation and a proper website 

Qt + Mono is probably the killer combination we're all looking for... 
Native look and feel + one of the strongest languages/platforms out 
there.... Yes, I know, it would be great... Were do we start?

And, of course, I forgot something... debugger, debugger, debugger, a 
debugger on every platform... Only two "small" things to make Mono shine 
brighter than ever... :-)
