A) it uses the SWT model not the swing model (good (IMHO))
B) The .net version is not very mature (not so good)

Does it have a GUI designer?

My 2 cents: I am using wxWindows (C++) on my daily job for a quite large

It works very well most of the time (there are some issues with making 
it look "native"
on Mac). I wish there would be a C# wrapper for wxWindows similar to
And I know about wx.net but the current status 
of this project is not as good as I want it to be.
