I think the generally accepted wisdom is don't use winforms.  The GUI experience on every platform is different - you should design your backend code separately from your GUI code, so you can easily slap on a new GUI in different platforms.  Personally, I'll be glad when X11 is finally dead and gone (as it almost is now.)  And winforms is based on X11.  So...  I think for mac, use Xamarin.Mac, and for linux, I think use Qt.
