GTK+ The GIMP toolkit (GTK+) matures to include yet another platform. This project aims to bring native GTK+ support to the Apple Mac OS X platform. The basic implementation is sponsored by Imendio AB and the work so far has been done by Anders Carlsson (of Imendio).

I don't think hatred or disrespect has anything to do with it. It's more a matter of securing same behaviour across platforms than securing a "native" look and feel on each platform.

It does feel slightly foreign, but this is true for many applications incl. several from Microsoft (Media Player and MSN Messenger, Outlook, Office 2003 etc.)

But no doubt wxWidgets, FLTK and Fox Tool Kit have a much more native feel than GTK+, but this has nothing to do with the tool kit working good or not. Stability has something to do with that.
