I need xamarin studio as xamarin tools fos vs are way behind in terms of stability and features.
It was extremely simple to install all the prerequisites for xamarin in a go, now if i download Xamarin Installer, it won't install xam studio at all, and if i download the standalone installer it won't download all the prerequisites, with me needing to go to each installer separately...

    Xamarin Studio for Windows isn't being updated anymore. With Microsoft acquiring Xamarin, why would they want you using something other than Visual Studio on Windows? Since it only worked for developing Android apps anyway, it's not that big a deal.

    Well actually the visual studio integration is far behind the Xamarin Studio integration. To me working on Xamarin-VS is like jumping back 2 years in terms of usability and stability of the build and debug process.
