It definitely feels alien on Mac OS X, but as long as it works...
(and it's definitely better than having to fire up X11.app first)

Swing has a more terrestrial look-and-feel, but that's probably
because Apple has spent tons of effort on making it look that way.

As with GTK+, it's the things like file browsing that hurt the most.
The others just look "gray", but so does e.g. Firefox so that's "OK".

Then again, I am using wxWidgets and Camino just because of the looks.
But having a unified/cross-platform look-and-feel isn't all bad either.
