Well my basic response has be 'yuck' because the windows and mac UIs  
are pretty nasty; I won't offer an opinion on any of the X11 based  
ones because the last one I saw was a while ago and it looked like a  
very poor copy of the worst parts of windows.

But if you really want host-like UI, try wxSqueak. If you want  
multiple host windows with the option to draw your own within those  
windows, try using the Ffenestri code. Come on guys, if this is  
important to you, put some damn effort into it.
