[REBOL] Re: What's native?

From: pwawood:mango:my at: 22-Jun-2004 8:12

Carl Whilst Eclipse's SWT can make applications look more native, it is still very difficult, if not impossible, to develop a single version of an application with the true look-and-feel of the platform. This is due to fundamental differences in the desktop metaphor between the various operating systems. One good example is the difference in menu bars between Mac and Windows. Macs have a system menu displayed at the top of the screen used by all applications that conform to Apple's human interface guidelines. Windows applications each have their own menu displayed in its own window. There are others. I think that there is a paradox for RT in whether REBOL is a cross-platform tool with it's own user interface metaphors or a tool for developing "write once, run everywhere" applications.
