WinForms wasn't originally created to be cross platform, but with Mono, it is
now technically cross platform.

The fact it currently doesn't look too good on certain OSes is not a flaw
that can't be fixed. There is a theming interface in place, just begging to
be used. Sure, you can't get something as native as a specific Cocoa (or
Carbon) UI, but there is no technical restriction that prevents, for
example, scrollbars to look like Aqua scrollbars, rather than mere

Theming aside, I hope the Mono team will keep on working on WinForms until
it is a first-class implementation... I understand it's not the priority,
but I hope it just won't end up being left to rot.
