Or we can find the bloke who is not keeping Ubuntu Mono and Iron Python
releases up to date and kick his....
errr...  ummm....  (mumble)...
  It is pretty weird that the distro which always has the latest of
everything is the one with the old IPy/Mono, where the one which is NEVER up
to date (RHEL) has it.  I'll do some investigating.  I'm afraid my
experiences with SUSE and Red Hat are what drove me to Ubuntu. I do almost
all of my open source work on a laptop, and there is a limit to what I dare
ask it to do.  Two operating systems and six IDEs/languages are pushing it a
bit.  Running VM would be over the top.  Perhaps I can set up another
desktop when I get home.
  Thanks for the advice.
