[Mono-winforms-list] Simple "getting started with Mono + WinForms" question

As far as the OS X part goes, if your interface is as simple as you describe,
then yes, in most cases you will be able to just plug-and-chug it onto OS X
using Mono and it will work.  This assumes you haven't specifically used any
Windows-only features in your app.

If your interface is sophisticated with many controls, then WinForms may not
work on OS X at a level that you'll want to release to customers.

My advice would be to test frequently on OS X as you develop your interface
so that you can get a first-hand opinion of whether the result will be
acceptable for your specific application.
