just trying out Xamarin on monodevelop on ubuntu and the basic project says : "This project type is not supported on linux on monodevelop" Anything I can do? Or any code sample to get me started with on monodevelop?
No idea if im typing this in the right channel or not .

that's pretty much the state of Xamarin on Linux, completely unsupported
MonoDevelop itself is certainly supported and any Mono projects you could develop with it

I understand looked up more what monodevelop is more like an ide with Open .net implementations.
explains why it is not supported ^^;;
Its like trying to run openjdk on windows xD.
*crude comparison

Xamarin Studio is the commercial/Windows/Mac build of MD with support for the commercial project types

depends what you mean by that
the Xamarin mobile development platform is paid-for software for Windows/Mac
MonoDevelop is the IDE that everything is integrated to, just dubbed Xamarin Studio on Windows/Mac

Could I develop projects with the same ease in Monodevelop as in Xamarin?

depends on the project type, the mobile types are only supported on Xamarin

I have no experience, a Xamarin user/employee would know better
but I assume no
MonoDevelop as it is is best suitable for Gtk# desktop applications
and anything in-between

Xamarin Studio is MonoDevelop + few custom addins
