I've started experimenting (making baby steps) with the Gtk# examples in
"Mono Kick Start".
They ain't quite right. They were using System.Drawing, switchted to Gdk.
It was the handful of examples provided with Mono-Beta3 that helped me
to get them working.
Would any of these "working" Gtk(#) examples from "Mono Kick Start" be
of use in GtkDemo?
