I've tried So Hard by Carlos Muentes

I really have tried for years to be excited about MonoDevelop, and I must admit the MD development team has done great work. But the lack of debugger integration is going to take this IDE no where. It can't be used professionally because of it, and it's so disappointing as I'm sure many developers (like me) really want to support Linux and .NET. Please MD team!! Please give us the debugger!!!

Re: I've tried So Hard by Dan Tines

Yeah, the Mono debugger situation has been frustrating for a while now. I think it's gone through a couple rewrites, but never seems to be ready for prime time.
