Microsoft products (Office 2003, WMP 10, etc) look far more out of place than GTK+.

Yeah, sure, dude. Wake me up when GTK+ apps use native Windows dialogs. When the buttons - even with the oh-so-great Wimp theme - are sized like normal Windows buttons. And, finally, when widgets GTK+ don't REDRAW THEMSELVES AT 1 Hz RATE. Seriously, I was able to reliably make a screenshot of a Gaim or Gimp window in the process of redraw. Just how much slower can it get?

Inkscape uses native Windows dialogs and redraws fast enough on my 3.2 GHz Pentium 4 box at work. It's also prety fast using Linux on my old 700 MHz Celeron at home

Show me the screenshot. I'm staring at inkscape on XP and it's using GTK+'s native file dialog. Redrawing is an issue as well, no matter how much you wish it wasn't.

I tested GTK+ and wxWidgets to see what to use to program a little utility app I wrote. I ended up choosing wx because of the above issues, which was disappointing.

Here's to the continual improvement of cross platform GTK+!
