what is the development status of winforms in mono. we are building a
software app and we would like to make it cross compatible with linux.
although the app is coded in vstudio 2005 using .net framework 2.0 , we are
interested in porting it to the linux. we did saw the existing developments
in gtk# but found it too confusing for practical use in a production
environment because of the learning curve of the developers. gtk# features
are almost undocument and it's a whole lot of difference while dealing with
them. for example, making a form's background gradient still needs a whole
lot of code to be written whereas in winforms using system.drawing2d, it
could be done just with a few lines of code.
are there any existing applications that we could see and view wherein
winforms are used and applied.
