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).

That might be.

However, for Windows applications I prefer to stick to native Win API everywhere (though wxWidgets is quite good too - but it also looks and behaves as native widgets).

GTK+ is cross platform, in the sense it works on several platforms.

The downside is it can feel slightly alien (I think the word is) to the platform it's running on.

But GTK+ isn't only good for Linux-applications. I personally prefer to use a native tool kit, no matter the platform.

FLTK or Fox Tool Kit are other good options.

I still think GTK+ is good also on the Windows platform, but it doesn't feel native as such. But then again.. it isn't native on the Win32 platform.

What other definitions of 'cross platform' do you have in your lexicon?

It could be cross platform in the sense, it was native on several platforms. One could of course claim GTK+ is native across several platforms (NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Linux :p )
