This grid contains invoice headers, customers, items.
User can edit them directly in grid, each row is commited to database when 
moving out of row.

Desktop GUI issues in MONO:

WinForms - MONO WinForms does not have DataGridView nor its Virtual grid 
WinForms is no more developed by Microsoft. Even MonoDevelop itself does not 
use it.
So there is no future.

GTK # - No Virtual Grid support. Few use in .NET applications, no binding 
support. Less documentation, less samples, less users than WinForms

WPF - according to MONO Winforms mailing list will probably never 

So there is no reasonable desktop GUI in MONO .

Any idea how to resolve this crisis ?
