arguments contra merge
A merge with Xamari is no good idea. You would merge a manufactor of many produchts with one of it's products. (Would you also suggest to merge Microsoft and Visual Studio?)
A merge with Stetic might be ok. See discussion contribution "Expanding Article Content".
A merge with GTK Sharp is no good idea. You would merge a IDE with one of the libraries used by it. (Would you also suggest to merge Visual Studio and System.Windows.Forms?)
A merge with Mono is no good idea. You would merge a IDE with it's target platform. (Would you also suggest to merge Visual Studio and .NET?)
This should be a good start. If there is an issue with this seeming likes an advert, please discus.

Expanding Article Content
From the lead paragraph, it looks like there should be sections:
- Features This section should discuss source control integration and supported SCMs, IntelliSense-like behavior, what about MonoDevelop resembles Eclipse and where they differ. Comparison to .NET support offered by Eclipse, if any, would also be good. Elaboration on support for other .NET languages would be good, as well. Is there a class/service modeling tool? Globalization, internationalization, and localization support?
- Stetic Stetic is now featured as part of MonoDevelop. Its page on MonoDevelop says that, "This document is meant as an introductory tutorial to Stetic, the GUI development tool of the MonoDevelop IDE." Thus, it would be more appropriate to discuss Stetic as part of this article rather than dedicating a separate article to Stetic. (This is in opposition to the current link to Stetic.)
I don't have time to work on this now, but if anyone else wants to have a go, that would be great. I don't want to add totally uninformative stub sections to the article, since the article looks okay as-is, if a bit skimpy. Once you've written some content, it might be good to put it on the main page so others might be motivated to add to it. —Jay Uv. (talk) 15:35, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
