Well, first, you can compile your application under Visual Studio, and 
let the compiled executable run on Linux, that way you can avoid 
MonoDevelop completely.

Second, mono doesn't come with a WinForms editor integrated. If you 
don't want to use Visual Studio, you need WinForms-Designer.

Normally, all you need to do to get .NET windows code running on Linux 
is remove windows specific commads/API invocations (such as user 
credentials), and replace moron's work of hardcoded "\" string  for 
directory separators with System.IO.Path.DirectorySeparatorChar.

Another source of annoyance is that Linux is case-sensitive, that means 
image.png and Image.png are not the same...
On Debian-based Linuxes, you can simply install cipfs to mount a 
directory, for example /media/casei as case-insensitive to /var/www, 
(which is the linux-equivalent of c:\inetpub\wwwroot)
/sudo apt-get install ciopfs
sudo mkdir /media/casei
sudo ciopfs /var/www /media/casei
ls -l /media/casei/index.aspx
ls -l /media/casei/INDEX.ASPX/

If you already have a larger CRM system project, I would not port 
everything to GTK# that only takes too long.
Instead, first look where ordinary winforms don't work, and if you can't 
fix it, use GTK#.

Kind regards
