The looks of a WinForms app on Linux can be altered by selecting a different 
theme. Alexander Olk has added created both the 'nice' and the 'clearlooks' 

To try them out, you can 'export MONO_THEME=clearlooks' or 'export 
MONO_THEME=nice' before starting your app on Linux, they might look less 
'strange' than the win32 default theme. The same themes work on the Mac, 
however, they won't match the native Mac UI. But a theme for that could be 
created, too.
