this notion of cohesiveness with the platform doesn't seem to bother
the developers of most pro-apps. Ableton Live, probably the biggest
selling music app of the last 5 years, looks nothing like the OS X or
Windows platform. Cubase/Nuendo, ProTools (and other AVID products),
Digital Performer, Sonar ... these are not cohesive with the platform.
FCP(X) is, but only because it is an apple product that runs only on

there is a place for cohesiveness with the platform: that place is for
platform-provided tools. things outside that domain: i'd just say give
it up and not worry about them (but try to make their developers'
lives easier anyway).
