Probbably the #WT library could be intressting for you. This is a Port 
of the SWT (Standard Widget Toolkit from the eclipse project written in 
We do the port to eas the porting of SharpDevelop.

#WT (and SWT) use native widgets on each platform. On Windows, it does 
API calls to the windows dll's on Linux it uses native calls to GTK (or 
probbably QT, but QT isn't portet to #WT yet.

Webforms arent possible with this. And I'm note shure if there is any 
chance to do a binding to webforms. (Another question is, if there is a 
chance to create a libraray that display's web-frontends and gui 
frontands with the same code, web applications need to have other 
fundamentials than gui application I think.

for more information about #wt have a look at: www.sharpwt.net nad the 
sd-mono-port list @ ximian.
