The other thing is I could sell the decision makers at my company on
developing for Linux, if I had access to a Windows forms development
environment. At the moment I am completely stymied, as they won't even
consider the idea of cross platform apps that require GTK being
installed on Windows. And yes being able to move preexisting MS Windows
Win Forms .NET Apps to Linux could be done quite easily if the WinForms
environment was available.
