Indeed. I would say that the more expensive an application running on
Windows is, the more probable it is that it has a long history, is
written using goddess knows what user interface libraries, and doesn't
use the Microsoft "widgets", for instace file open dialog. Case: CAD
and EDA software, where license and support fees can easily be in the
range of thousands of dollars per seat per year.
