I'd personally prefer GTK#, though it can look out of place on windows.
Similarly Winforms definitely looks out of place on linux. It's a tradeoff.
The ideal option would be for you to create a UI using both toolkits so it
looks native on both platforms, but this may not be an option due to limited

On windows, use VS/SharpDevelop. On linux use MonoDevelop.

All three IDEs support the Visual Studio project format, so just use that.
