There are two efforts to build Windows.Forms.  The community has been
maintaining a Gtk#-based Windows.Forms implementation, while the folks
at Novell have been implementing it on top of Wine (we converted Wine
into a library).

In the Novell effort, we use Wine as our "toolkit", so we get most of
the functionality of Windows.Forms for free as well as being very
compatible with advanced features like Wndproc overrides and P/Invoke
for third party controls.

But this is all covered in the FAQ, which you probably should read
