That's the sad part of all this, the mono proyect have a mwf-designer!!, 
is just that it need to be  finished and integrated, I can say that for 
simple things is almost posible to work with it.

I have to agree that Gtk is a excelent library, but also that the 
install overhead to use it it in my case make it a no-go most of the time.

A mono developer once told me about this topic "why we have to 
concentrate efforts in a deprecated GUI toolkit", :-P , come on!!, old 
yes, may be even ugly and not rich featured, but deprecated??, I bet 
that winform apps are going to be with us for at least another 5 years, 
even with WPF, solverlight or wherever other things came across, is just 
to many app that are allready writed using it...and new programers are 
use to have it arround...

IMHO, if MD+mono really want to be a cross-platform solution and take 
the atention of windows developers, a integrated mwf-designer is "must 
have", even if they say "the current one is not mature to be 
integrated", you can tell me what MD feature was really mature/stable 
when was shippend with the "stable" release?

but ok, don't include a mwf-designer, I sure that this topic is going to 
came back over and over from time to time...

my two cents...now shot.
