My first taste of Monoppix was interesting this evening.  For those not in the know, Monoppix is a Bootable CD version of Linux with the Mono Framework and tools pre-installed.  This allows you to play around with the Mono tools on Linux without installing anything.  It loads Linux directly from the CD and creates a RAM disk to store your data. 

I found MonoDevelop pretty buggy in this version.  I kept locking it up.  If I knew how to disable help lookup and intellisense, it would probably be plenty stable.  I'll probably go back and play around with the MySql Managed provider at some point.  Take a look if you have some extra time.
