[Gtk-sharp-list] Gtk# status

Well here is my question.  Moving forward, if I am going to develop a
business application which needs a database back-end, perhaps some
integration with web services, and a nice GUI, and I want this app to
run on both Linux and Windows, do I use Gtk# for the GUI front-end, and
then ADO.NET; and will I have to write my own custom data-bound

I am a little confused as to just what Gda and Gnomedb provide.  I was
under the impression those are necessary in order to have data-bound
controls on a Gtk+ GUI.

Just wanted to point out that the reason these aren't supported on
windows is because the native libraries themselves are not supported. 
If anyone were to port gnome to run natively under windows (which I
think people have done/attempted in the past, but nothing current), or
any of the others, there is no reason that the gtk-sharp bindings won't
work with these.
