Microsoft Build (msbuild) is a build system developed by Microsoft similar in spirit to Nant (in that it uses XML files for describing the build process) and in the same spirit as make.
Projects created in Visual Studio 2005 (except VC++2005) are saved in MSBuild format.
xbuild is Mono's implementation of msbuild and it allows projects that have an msbuild file to be compiled natively on Linux. xbuild has been part of the standard Mono distribution for some time now, but it is not 100% complete yet.

Yes. It seems so. But nobody wants to build both of them.
It is some kind of porting M$ logic to Linux, you know.
And this for only providing a "simple" painting application, but there are so weird dependencies.
So, I am out of this, and maybe others too.
This is no trolling.
