that 's true, also usually it's possible to compile the cvs version on 
top of this. (sometimes not ;] )

I also got it compiled, but i couldn't run _any_ of the samples.  
(system.dllnotfoundexception: libgtk-win32-2.0-0.dll - 
/sw/etc/mono/config seems to be correct, DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/sw/lib))

could You tell a little bit more about this?

i really don't know nothing about gtk, but about WinForms i do not think 
that it would feel like a native UI platform for Windows. can You tell 
any applications that You regularly use and is created with WinForms? 
(if You use Windows at all ;] )
For me it still feels really fragile and too robust in the same time.

I have one more question concerning mono on mac: xsp. Did anyone 
successfully run it ever?
