Cocoa is an object-oriented application environment designed
specifically for developing Mac OS X native applications. The Cocoa
frameworks support rapid development and high productivity, and
include a full-featured set of classes designed to create robust and
powerful Mac OS X applications. Cocoa provides developers starting new
Mac OS X projects the fastest way to full-featured, extensible, and
maintainable implementations. Applications from UNIX and other
platforms can also be brought to Mac OS X quickly by using Cocoa to
build state-of-the-art Aqua user interfaces while retaining most
existing core code.


CocoaSharp allows developers to call Cocoa APIs in native C# code
using dot notation. Developing Cocoa# applications will be just like
developing Mono application except that you are allowed to call Cocoa
and Foundation APIs.

it means Cocoa# is  not System.Windows.Forms implementation with Aqua
look and feel.
