DotGNU pnet does work on Windows ... But as far as GUI is concerned , 
I think Gnome/Gtk is the preferred model .. I think Gtk# programs already
run well with pnet .

As for Windows.Forms .. I would like Biochem333's opinion about the 
difference .. How possible is it to do something like that using GDK
and the System.Drawing API ?

wxWindows (I don't like it ,but it's there already) ... Sort of like an
AWT for C/C++ .. We just need a wrapper for wxWindows#..

Or maybe we need to convince Windows to use GTK (LOL)...

Well wrapping MFC into Windows.Forms was the easiest way there was ...

I'm still lost at what you are stating... are you suggesting a new GUI
model for DotGNU ?... 

The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
