I was asking myself the very same question a few months ago. Both didn't do very well in an interoperable sense. gGTKÃ# had some stability issues when used in Windows, while the winforms look on linux is, to put it polite, not exatly appealing to the eye (plus the layout wan't always done correctly).
So, I ended up coding to seperate UI which are controlled using a general base class.
