1) I think there's no solution for that, it's been asked before, you may
want to look around.
2) Mixing GTK# and WinForms, although more or less possible, is not a good
idea, IMO. Just pick one or the other.
3) No idea.
4) There hasn't been any Mac-specific progress that I could see (there were
some plans for Mono 2.6, but they ended up being scrapped, unfortunately).
That said, I recently discovered a parameter that makes WinForms apps behave
better on Mac. Launch your app by typing: MONO_MWF_MAC_FORCE_X11=1 mono
and see if some things behave better...
5) WinForms support for iPhone or Android isn't planned. What the Mono devs
are opting for is using wrappers around the iPhone / Android UI libs, rather
than reusing desktop API like WinForms or GTK#. This has the benefit of
really looking native, at the cost of having to write platform-specific
6) Dunno.
