[Mono-winforms-list] Suffering from mono-noob-cleosis.

Yes. Basically, MonoMac is a C# wrapper around native OSX libraries. An extra
layer that lets you use them from the .NET side, in managed land.

Also, note that MonoMac is quite recent, and isn't mature yet. Before, there
were many different OSX wrappers for Mono (Monobjc, Cocoa#, etc), but no
"official" one, causing division in the community. So, MonoMac is an attempt
from the Mono team to fix that.

Anyway, depending on what you want to do, you may not need to use MonoMac.
If you don't need a strong Mac integration (using Mac-only features...), you
can do without, I think.
