General Development This is a call out for help on creating a consistent and native feeling on Mac OS X and Linux. As I have never owned a Mac and haven't used Linux as my main OS for over 3 years I need the community of OSNews to help me do this.

Agreed on native look, but...

I agree with the author. A consistent, native look is important to me, too. I shake my head when I see programs like firewalls or antivirus software skinning their interface, while their priority should be the protection of my computer.

On the screenshot, I was surprised to find foobar2k included. Its native look and feel was among the reasons I switched to it. Yeah, with its default settings it looks ugly, but in no way it "sports its own interface principles, its own look and feel, ...".
Or, to say it in other words: Stoffi is not going to win me over because of its interface, since foobar2k is good enough already. The features matter. And as long Stoffi isn't a "better fb2k than fb2k", I don't see myself using it. So until I gave it a try, I'll just say: It is, nevertheless, a nice project with a commendable basic concept, so I'm sure it'll appeal to others.
