Yes, there are new GNOME applications that are written in C#, and I believe there will be more. What I don't believe is that "all the new Gnome stuff will be done in c# using mono and gtk#". If GNOME project decided that "from now on, all new GNOME applications shall be written in C#", I'm sure they would lose a lot of developers.
Personally I don't know C#, so I don't have any real opinnions about it. Generally speaking I like the fact that we have several languages as this allows using correct tool for a given task. C# API for GTK? Sure, sounds great.
