When I say transparent I say that you use your provider without need to
know what is your end database provider. When you use ADP you write your
program exactly than you write your MySQL, MSSql, Oracle program but
your change your provider namespace to "Advanced.Data.Provider" and all
"Sql*" classes to "Adp*" classes... when you need to change your
application to work as examples from SqlServer to Oracle you only need
to modify your app.config.

The most adavantage is that your can write your program exacty that you
whiten on another database provider.

I like to have a lot of toolkits then you will be able to choose what is
the best for your solution. See "Managed Windows Forms", it is a 100% C#
implementation of "System Windows Forms" and it works on Windows, Linux
and MacOS

I agree with you and I think that on the future we will have it...
MonoDevelop now suport debugging and Dan Winship works on designer
"Stetic" can be found on Mon SVN.
