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#.
