[Mono-winforms-list] Mono 1.1.5 and Winform OSX Performance?

The speed is there on X11 and on Win32, I can see no reason why SWF apps 
wouldn't have the same speed on the Mac.

However, since the driver for the Mac has so far been done by a single 
volunteer, maybe he can get some help? It seems that there's a lot of people 
asking/wanting, but nobody contributing?
