[Mono-list] I give up

In 1997 I worked for a company that was developing
a broadcast platform, and we used to develop in C++
on Linux with Qt... Even if I prefer GTK+, I must admit that
Qt was a very nice portable C++ framework.

Furthermore, even if GTK+ is one of my preferred frameworks,
I tend to avoid Gtk# (which is a thin wrapper around GTK) in
favor of Windows.Forms. Why? Just for marketing reasons.

We develop on Linux with Mono, but our applications should
work as they are on Windows too. Of course, Gtk# can also be
installed on Windows, but Windows.Forms are already there
by default...
