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.

If you don't want to do all the work porting across the different Linux/UNIX/BSD flavors, you might want to look in to wxWidgets, if I remember correctly it just tries to wrap native widgets in to a slightly more strict framework so it can work on most systems. I've used it in the past for making things just work across platforms. Because of that you can't do much that is fancy, but it looks like you don't want to anyway being that you want something that looks native rather than shiny.

But "porting" is what I want to do! ;)

I have built the whole project to have the whole interface easily replaced just so I can create one for each environment. ;)
