Amazing release! Being able to code XNA on my MacBook Pro is such a handy little convenience. Just when you think XNA is gonna go away, MonoGame revives it. Well played guys!

Really good job, just a few issues that will hopefully be fixed for the real 3.0 release. You guys really deserve a lot more attention and recognition than you're getting. Microsoft should be paying you for "bringing XNA" to Windows 8 metro. Thanks!
