I use Visual C# Express to create new forms. Otherwise, I maintain 
winforms code by hand (which is most of the time). My forms have lots of 
custom controls and visual hierarchy, and mwf-designer fails badly.

One of these days, I'm going to spend some time trying to run Visual C# 
2008 or SharpDevelop on Wine. One can get Microsoft .NET Framework to 
install under Wine. I wonder if newer versions of Wine can run basic VS 
or SD.

I also thought about trying to get SharpDevelop to run on Mono. Perhaps 
trying to replace Windows API dependencies (which I guess are mostly 
about toolbars and other UI elements) with managed versions. But the new 
SharpDevelop 3.0 has some strong dependencies on Windows _and_ MS .NET's 
features not implemented in Mono.

Anyway, I guess it's going to be all about the mwf-designer if and when 
it's working.
