FWIW, I'm doing a bit of experimenting in this too. I think that the
route I will take is to stick with WinForms. So far, for all of the
very simple stuff I'm doing, I haven't encountered any real issues. I
base this decision on the fact that I already know WinForms and I'm
not up to speed on GTK#.
