Gtk# is a toolkit.  GDI+ is a drawing API.

So you are comparing apples to oranges.

A better thing to compare would be Gtk# vs Windows.Forms and GDI+ vs

Windows.Forms is well documented, a stable API, and some people feel its
very limited in some ways.

Gtk# is a binding that takes advantage of the Gnome platform and the Gtk
toolkit, so it gives the best desktop integration for Unix applications,
but it is not complete, not well documented, and not widely available
