Dual monkey & unity users?

Do any of you monkey users (musers?) also use Unity? I'm particularly interested to here from people that use Unity Pro.

I use & like both. It really comes down to the nature of the project I'm working on.

I'm currently using both (not Pro though) for 2D games for comparison. I like how easy physics stuff is in Unity + the visual level building / component editing, but the visual... smoothness for 2D seems stronger(in native Windows) and I like the lower level control I have and the easy HTML5 (and bonus iOS, Android, etc.) options with Monkey. Both are certainly cool.

For 3D, however, Unity beats all hands down, IMO.

I've been using unity (not pro) for a couple of years. Released a 3d iOS game using it.

I have just started playing with Monkey because I like that it can build to iOS and Android and flex at a much lower cost than unity and also I think it will probably be easier for me to create 2d games than with unity (mostly because of my years of experience with blitz).

good subject. would be happy to hear from more people.
many people having this dilema.

can you in unity for exmaple build your own Gui interface.
or program stuff that are not games?

also is anyone using Jmonkey?
Looks like also a good platform.
