Comment on "Simple Truths About Cross-Platform Apps"
by David Cairns — Mar 21

People use these cross-platform GUI libraries to make development faster, and I don't think this is such a bad thing. The reason apps written using these libraries tend not to catch on on the Mac, is that they aren't Mac-like. That said, they do tend to catch on on Linux and Windows.

I am willing to bet this is due to the fact that the Windows and Linux GUI shells are nearly identical.

Why arent't there* any cross-platform GUI libraries that attempt to bring a Mac-like interface to other platforms?

* there might be, I just have never heard of any.
