Hi people!

I remember that this is the DotGNU approach.....


"An advantage of our implementation of System.Windows.Forms is that we don't
try to wrap up third party widget sets like Gtk, Qt, Wine, etc. Instead, we
provide a basic drawing layer and then render the controls ourselves. The
approach is similar to Java Swing, in that all controls are implemented in
pure C#."

I see that the Drawing namespace works via gdi+ on both Windows and Linux so
I was wondering why we don't just
develop controls using that Library instead of relying on gtk+ which must be
installed on Windows?
