Hi All,

I know OSX Winforms are still very very early alpha..

But.. I do have a couple of questions.

When I tested a simple example using the 1.1.5 DMG file I noticed a coupe of things. 

1) Initially all controls were displayed for 0.5 sec, then some disappeared.
    If I move the mouse over the area or resize the winform they reappeared.

2) The controls look ok, but speed is very average..
     For example.. If I have a tab control and select the second page
     you see the empty page then the controls apear.

     Also when I moved a slider the gui updates ok etc. 
     But there is a noticable lag between movement and display update.

Will Mono be able to run GUI apps with a native look/speed when the code base is optimised ?

Any info much appreciated.
