You should not consider WinForms to be a viable option on a Mac. The
only way the interface really works is by using X11 as back end, and
that has been broken in mono distributions for two years now. See
https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2474 while marked fixed,
it's never made it into the distro.

In Mono land, if Xamarin cannot make a profit from it, it's abandonware.
