Switch to MSTest

This being a C# and Visual Studio project on TFS, is there a reason that you use Galleo and MBUnit instead of just MSTest?

Seems like we wouldn't need the extra dlls and we could run the tests from Visual Studio with installing something.

If next statements are true for this project:

1. No need in special possibilities of specific test framework (will never contain complex tests).

2. Should be run by most devs without modification of their environments.

3. All tests are simple(short) and just say that nothing was forgotten, writing tests(putting attributes) should be automated or fast(like short attributes names).

4. Wrappers are generic (can be split for and used on different CLR implementations)

In this case it is the best to choose NUnit as integrated into SharpDevelop, MonoDevelop, VS2010+ReSharper, Gallio, VS2012.

asdandRizzo, I agree with you on most counts.

Gotcha...it is so that SharpDevelop and MonoDevelop users can run test.

I figured there was a reason and being a "Mono" promoter myself, I should have thought of that.
