[MonoDevelop] Hello MonoDevelop World

I tried before with almost 0 response, but never mind, let me try again.

I would like to use MonoDevelop latest stable version on my Mint Linux (the
latest) laptop. 
I have no wish to use anything like GTK# or similar. I just would like to be
able to make "hello world" console in C#, and to be able to follow it
through debugger. Not more than that as the "step one". The key questions it
seems are:

1 :: Is MonoDevelop in usable state for the Mint/Ubuntu ? if yes, is the
"usual" way the best way to install it?
2 :: What parts are in what stage, eg : experimental, alpha, beta, stable ? 
3 :: Where can one find an up-to-date list of all the MonoDevelop related
subprojects and their status ?

Also, where can I find usefull and consistent info on "real life" projects,
people and companies using Mono+MonoDevelop, developing and delivering
software for which customers are actually paying ? 

Many thanks: Mr D.Jovanovic, Msc Arch, London UK

AFAIK the Ubuntu Mono packages break up the GTK# package into core and
dev package, and their MonoDevelop package doesn't install the GTK#
dev package.
