Yes, MonoDevelop has steadily improved. I also have strong Windows
background but have been experimenting in Ubuntu for the last several years.

Perhaps the MD community can explain this to me and I am not trying to start
any holy war here only to seek information to satisfy my query.

In Windows, I have no trouble of installing the latest Visual Studio in
Windows - for example I am running VS2010 in XP. However, I am using Ubuntu
12.04 LTS and I am stuck in MonoDevelop 3.x even using a PPA to update it.
Perhaps I am using the wrong PPA or wrong distro of Linux?

I have experimented with PMono and that seemed to work allowing me to use a
different version - kind of like side-by-side support. Why can't MD be
installed into UBuntu independent of the version of the OS?

In my development machine running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, I have no trouble
upgrading Oracle's NetBean IDE to the latest version.

Is there something I can do other than building from source?
