You should try selling the Mac look to a Mac crowd. :-)  The UI  
emulation strategy isn't quite doing the job these days - there are  
always little clues/imperfections/holes that can be seen.  I also  
have had problems with VW's rendering speed on the Mac.  You can  
still watch it draw.  One would expect that drawing the text in a  
scrolling list would be instant these days but it is not.

I think wxWindows holds out the most hope.
