[Mono-list] IDE developing .net applications

SharpDevelop runs only on Windows, so I can't use it.
VS.NET is a hog and only runs on Windows.
MonoDevelop constantly crashes on my machine with the experimental
ASPNET and ASPNETEDITOR extensions. Without these it is really just
csharp-plugin for eclipse is very shaky, it only provides syntax
highlighting and that is all, everything else must be configured
manually (builds etc). If you are not familar with Eclipse, this is a
tough row to hoe.
X-Develop is non-free and I ran into an issue getting it to work
smoothly for mono. I am sure with time I could have worked out the
issues, but I moved on before trying too hard.
Anjuta would not compile on my amd64 machine due to scintilla errors and
KDevelop has no features for C#/mono.
A few weeks ago I tried out SciTE, it does syntax highlighting for C#, I
configured it to invoke nant for builds (F7) and invoke xsp for the GO
command (F5). It provides everything I need for development (multiple
buffers, tabs, very fast, very configurable, very simple). Furthermore,
it is able to parse the output of the compiler so it can jump right to
the file/line where the error occurred. You can save your workspace, so
it remembers the files you have open, this works like a poor man's project.
I would like to use MonoDevelop once again when it becomes more stable.
For now I will use SciTE. I am used to using VS.NET 2003 at work, but I
don't really *NEED* any of the crap it has that the other editors do
not. Further I run Linux at home, so this is not an option for me
anymore. I might miss the debugger but those mostly make you lazy anyway.
