You can use GTK# under the MS runtime just fine. I've found this works
really well on a VS.net machine as it allows you to use VS.net for your
GTK# development (intellisense, etc.) and debugging. You can even grab a
win32 copy of glade and use it for interface design. I've spent a few
hours attempting to make a GTK# interface designer addin for Visual
Studio, but I haven't made much progress - it's not as usable as glade,
but glade works pretty slick. :)

If you have any questions about GTK# under vs.net, send me a message.
There are a few gotchas you might find yourself working around.
