Is it really? I'm watching it for 5 years now at it is always in
terrible broken state. Definitely a no for me.

Forget it. Neither you nor any customer of you will get happy with
GTK+ on MacOSX.

G> Any hint?

The only ways are
1) WxWidgets

2) Maintain two GUI's. Write a small abstraction layer for your
required widget functionality and then put the window creation stuff
(which is the most toolkit specific) into a different module for each
platform. Thats how i did it, but yes it's very expensive. 6 men
months for us.

3) Just develop for one platform and do this with 100% quality.

4) Dont' care about native Apps and play the GUI Nazi.

Best regards,
