The plans have not been finalized yet.

Mono Core (the first public release of Mono) will be limited in scope:
it will just be a stable release of the components that we feel are
mature for people to use.

It will likely not ship with a GUI toolkit, and much less with
Windows.Forms support.  You might want to look into Gtk# or Qt# as GUI
toolkits in the meantime, but neither is a production quality toolkit.

Today if you want a portable GUI application with a high level language,
you want to use Java.
