Don't underestimate this point. wx is a really great toolkit, I've done
a lot of stuff in it for win and mac.

Us Linux users tend not to mind what an application's look and feel is
like since there are so many different toolkits in use. Windows users
are less forgiving and are more easily confused if you do things in a
non-windows way. And as for Mac users... They are hopeless with anything
non-Mac, maybe with the exception of those who are prepared to play with
darwin and fink stuff.
