You can use Qt or wxNET, or something else that claims to look native on 
different platforms like Java, but the truth is that "feeling native" is 
about a lot more than just the style of your widgets.

If you want to write your UI only once, you're going to have to deal 
with it "feeling native" on exactly 0 or 1 platforms.

If you pick a different toolkit, I hope the results meet your needs.
