Not 100% sure. I haven't used Monogame but I assume this would be hardware
accelerated. There's also OpenTK (http://www.opentk.com/) which is somewhat
similar - A cross-platform wrapper around OpenGL.
local file system access?
Yes - The System.IO
Can we grab raw mouse position data to write gesture systems?
Yes - With a Windows Forms application, you can use
get the mouse position. I haven't tried this with Mono before, but I
assume it'd work. There's be similar APIs available for GTK# or OpenGL
(should be available in whichever OpenGL wrapper you use).
