MonoDevelop and Xamarin Studio don't have a WinForms designer, so you'd
better stick with Visual Studio. I admit I'm not really up to date on this,
but there must be VS plugins to run your app with Mono from the IDE. I've
found the MonoDebugger project (http://www.monodebugger.net/), but it seems
it's still not available. Maybe Xamarin for Visual Studio does what you want
(http://xamarin.com/visual-studio), but I'm not sure, since it's actually
specialized in mobile development.

Note you could also just build your app with VS then manually test it on
Mono on all the targeted platforms. It's not ideal, but it's what I do
(except I use SharpDevelop).
