[Mono-devel-list] develop under Microsoft .NET and porting to Mono is correct?

Everything should be perfect. For better integration of GTK# elements
into a Windows environment use the WIMP theme. It emulates Windows text
regions and exposes accessibility features of Windows on GTK widgets.
Avoid using GConf, Gnome, Gnome-vfs, and VTE libraries (just to name a
few) and don't pinvoke interfaces to libraries that don't have Windows
ports already with the same API. You should be safe if you do that. :-)
Hope that helps.
