Remember this is just an opinion but I feel that the apprentice of Gtk# 
applications look very nice on Linux distros like Suse, Fedora, or 
Ubuntu but it always seems to  that when I look a one of my Gtk# 
applications on Windows it does not look nearly as nice in a addition to 
missing stock images that seem to be available in all Linux distros. 
Maybe I'm doing something wrong but that is how a feel about the 
appearance of Gtk# on Windows.

I am of the opinion that aesthetics are important in application 
development so if I am able to make my applications look nicer on 
Windows I'm going to try.
