[MonoDevelop] Gtk or Winforms?

The answer is not difficult. You should target Gtk. While winforms
performs best at windows, gtk its the best choice to Linux. There is
also another advantage. If you do not use gtk widgets not yet ported to
windows, your application can run both at Windows and Linux. Also, as
mono runs in many OS you can ship it as well in Mac OSX as others - just
check www.mono-project.com for all supported systems.

To finish I just want to add that Windows.Forms are in a development
stage. While we expect them to work just fine, at this time they are not
usable yet :(

Hope that helps.
