Thanks for the reply.
Will/Can different .NET/Mono platforms have some GUI libraries
and not others? (I'm assuming System.Windows.Forms is
a GUI library like GTK+.)

What is the best wisdom on using System.Windows.Forms 
instead of GTK+ directly then?
If Ximian could encourage all new GNOME apps to be in 
one GUI library what would Ximian like that to be?
System.Windows.Forms? GTK+?

Thanks again,
