Are there any relatively reliable, freeware .NET UI component suites out there? I currently use Syncfusion and like it a lot, but I'm wondering if there's anything cheaper or more interesting lying around at the moment. I've googled around but the ones I've found are either in their infancy or too buggy.

Designer? Is that some VS thing?

I think it does have some kind of RAD gui tool support. Isn't there a Glade#?

Well, if he is looking for a few UI controls that he can just use from VS.NET, it's hardly a solution to just suggest a whole different toolkit. I am very interested in this as well which is why I am bumping this thread, most controls that were actually useful weren't freeware when I was last searching for it.

GTK also looks horrid on Windows machines because it insists on drawing the user interface itself. Users don't like custom UIs!

We are now using DotNetBar, it's not free but very cheap: 189USD/single license without source code. I was looking at some other component suites (docking functionality was my main concern) and liked this one the best, because it has good design time support and is nice to work with from code. It's very stable for us, too.
