[Ironpython-users] Recommended IDE for IronPython on Linux? (Advise for the poverty stricken)

VS is a mixed native / managed program, so Mono isn't sufficient to make it
run on a non-Windows OS. If your goal is to host IronPython in a C# program,
you should definitely be able to use the Express version to develop that.
But you won't be able to use any of the Python tooling inside that copy of
VS. You'd need to install a separate VS shell install to work with Python
Tools. I belive you may still get some amount of IronPython debug support
from Express if you set the right the right flags on your hosted IronPython
engine such that it generates PDBs for the Python code.
