Why not use something like Qyoto (C# bindings for Qt) that uses Qt's
GUI libraries for cross-platform development?

The aforementioned Eto.Forms is some kind of wrapper that allows you to design your GUI and run the same code on iOS, Mac OSX, Linux GTK# 2 or 3, and Windows.Forms and WPF.  I say again, I haven't used it yet and can't advocate it right now - but it's the right idea going in the right direction.  Just hope to have more than one option to compare.
