I'm in the process of evaluating ways to use Mono on a Linux platform. It
would be interesting to hear your opinion on what GUI toolkit to use. From
what I understand, Gtk# is a little bit more mature than Mono Winforms,
although the latter is progressing fast it seems. I have a few requirements

*  Must support 3d graphics somehow (we use OpenGL now, in a C++
*  GUI Designer must be available
*  Must be possible to create custom controls

What is the support for these three requirements, when it comes to Gtk# and
Mono Winforms? The system we're using is x86 1Ghz with 256Mb ram, 3d support
is hardware accelerated.

When you have the luxury of starting more or less from scratch, which
toolkit would you suggest?

Thanks in advance!
