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
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.
