[Mono-list] Why doesn't Mono do cross platform GUI development like Java?

Thanks -- I'd looked at the Xamarin forms, but I'm only interested in client
development -- no iOS or Android, so that seems non-optimal at this point.
The XWT sounds interesting, but I couldn't tell if it was actually an active
project.  Most of the discussion about it has been around 2012, though I see
there have been some recent check-in on Git, so maybe.  I had the same
question with the ETO project.  These seem like one off efforts, and I was
something that was actually being baked into mono and actually maintained
(not like Windows.Forms has been).

Depending on what exactly you want to do, you can use any of these:
