In a word: WndProc.
In two words: WndProc and P/Invoke.
Windows.Forms exposes the window procedure (WndProc) to the programmer,
allowing them to intercept all Win32 messages (e.g. WM_PAINT, etc.).
Using a platform-agnostic toolkit would not expose WndProc, and
emulating WndProc is very difficult.
Thus, don't emulate it; just use it, in the form of Wine.
As for P/Invoke, it's reasonably probable that people will assume a full
Win32 environment and will P/Invoke out to Win32 functions, such as
If we don't use Wine, any application that does this won't run under
