He he.... Thankfully, it takes much more than that to get lynched in this 
newsgroup (sometimes).  Even so, you're sure to have a least a few people 
come to your rescue before the deed could be done.   There's enough diversity 
in here to guarantee that, even if it's not always popular to applaud MS 
technologies. ;)

Anyway, for those of us who are unfamiliar with WinForms, the question would 
be whether or not WinForms works on Mono.  A quick google seems to indicate 
that WinForms is, at least, partially implemented on Mono.
