Hi, Miguel,

Mmmm... it is always good to refactor your code, separate bussiness logic
from user interface and so, but there is no need to code different heads,
provided you use Gtk#. You can also use WinForms, provided the parts you
use do not have bugs.

For what its worth, Xamarin Studio itself uses Gtk# 2, and Xwt.
Is Xamarin going to make any effort in this front in the near future?
Finishing WinForms? Finishing the port of Gtk#3? Finishing XWT? Or is the
desktop (as it seems) something completely away from Xamarin's objectives?
