I don't actually hate this IDE, but it is no longer being developed. I read someone mention on the github page for this that development was shut down for it, and moved to the Apple version of Visual Studio. You can still write C# apps with GUIs, but there's no point, as it will never recieve any C# language features introduced since the last version of this was released. If you like using C#, and want a similar experience that this app should offer, then I recommend using Visual Studio Code, Glade, and writing in the Vala language instead. But pretty much any IDE still being maintained is a better choice than bothering with this IDE at all now.

Nice IDE for C#. We need to install it to be able to run MonoDeveloper from Unity3D.

I wouldn't recommend this IDE to anybody; if you want it to work properly in mint then you need to mess a lot with your system by uninstalling and installing lots of dependencies, which can lead to inestability. Install it under your own risk!

IDE is great. But DO NOT INSTALL using this package - install using mono-complete.

It's really nice for small programs, but when using .NET the output is different from the output when using visual studio on windows.

While the package is great, this is missing the cairo library (so that it can run) and the compiler (so that you can compile programs). I just don't know why they don't put it as a dependency (Literally the program cannot open without the cairo library)
