Although Microsoft's focus is now on WPF, Windows.Forms will be around
for a long time.   There are too many applications already built with it
and a solid ecosystem that is going to be around for a long time.

DataGridView is in the plans to be implemented.

But if you are unable to use Gtk# or Windows.Forms on their current
state, then you should consider using Swing.
