Mac OS X After the news that the new MacBook Airs do not ship with Flash pre-installed (which is news considering Flash has been part of Mac OS X for a very long time), we now have news that Apple is also taking what appears to be the first steps towards removing Apple's own Java runtime from Mac OS X.

Same problem with QT applications, nothing really looks or fits right.

AWT/SWING Java applications are not great on OSX, but SWT based ones like Eclipse are actually pretty nice.

Interesting that about the only "cross platform" toolkit that works decently on all platforms in SWT which is Java based.

If coded correctly, the GUI should be a small isolated part of your application, and should be easy to write in the native toolkit for the platform, -- Windows/C#-Winforms, Linux/GTK,QT and Mac/Cocoa.
