Monodevelop is a pretty good IDE. VB.net is a bit neglected by mono, C# 
has priority, but you can develop console applications with monodevelop 
in VB.NET pretty well.

On the other hand, there is no winforms designer in mono.
WinForms are usable, but for seriously selling an application, they are 
too badly rendered.

If you want to sell anything, I suggest you use monodevelop, gtk# and glade.
Glade being the separate IDE where you design your UI.

Maybe wxWidgets.net has a better GUI, as wxWidgets is better than GTK 
and QT in almost all respects, but probably not yet, they are still 
stabilizing their .NET/mono bindings.

The problem with gtk# and glade is that it's badly documented, 
especially on Windows.
But I got it running non-the-less, so you can, too. On Linux it's much 
simpler anyway.
