Hi all,

I am looking to develop a new application and am considering my choice of
framework. .NET seems like a good choice. I want to try to pick a framework
which has maximum flexibility a few years down the track.

Does anyone know if the gtk# libraries can be used in silverlight /
moonlight? If not, what should I be using for GUI construction? It looks
like Windows Forms are going to be somewhat deprecated in favour of WPF/e.
If I start developing in GTK#, am I cutting myself out of the web? If I
develop with Windows Forms am I shooting myself in the foot with regards to

Also, my preferred language (by and large) is Python. IronPython looks
pretty good / stable. Would people recommend developing the core of a
medium-sized application using C# or IronPython? Or is it not particularly

I'm sure Google will help, but are there any recommended mechanisms for
tying in to a database system while using .NET? Do the .NET libraries favour
any particular database package, or does it not matter very much?

Thanks for all your help,
