I think GTK# works the best for cross-platform C# applications at the
moment, so if you want to have a cross-platform GUI application I'd
definitely go with it. XWT (https://github.com/mono/xwt) looks like it
could be good but I'm not sure if it's production-ready yet.

Another one is wx.NET which is a wrapper around wxWidgets. I haven't tried
it though. http://wxnet.sourceforge.net/
