A Test Runner for mbUnit

Andrew Stopford, the new leader of the mbUnit team, is wondering why people seem to overlook mbUnit. My personal thought on this is that until recently, it was unclear how to download and install mbUnit. Previously, you only got mbUnit by installing a VS.NET addin, which might have scared people away.

We're using mbUnit after evaluating it against several of its competitors.

After using it for a while, one of my favorite features is this:

using MbUnit.Core;

class Startup
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        using (AutoRunner runner = new AutoRunner())
        {
            runner.Load();
            runner.Run();
            runner.ReportToHtml();
        }
    }
}

This simple class allows me to build my unit tests as an executable, therefore allowing me to execute them at any time. Awesome...
