Any good experiences with monotouch?

Ive been looking around hoping to find out which language to use for game/app development.
Not only the language, but also the different frameworks are of importance.

Personally I dont like objective c alot and so my search brought me to monotouch. 399 is quite a bit of money so I dont just want to buy it and test it (and im aware that there is a free trial version).
But i was wondering if anyone here has used it in game development and if so was it restricted in any non-obvious way?

Being able to use proper generics, delegates, lambda *drool* and obviously linq really makes the little geek in me dance of joy. Im not looking for the "you can also do that without monotouch" kind of answers.

So have you peeps used it?
did it work well?
did it feel broken/restricted?
and last but not least ... does it perform well (well i assume it does as it is precompiled).

thanks in advance
