No, I think just using one of the two most popular toolkits (Gtk or
Qt) is enough. Both of those have Windows bindings and at least Qt
has a native (non-X) Mac binding as well. And since they receive the
most developer focus of the various toolkits, they set an
appearance/usability standard that other toolkits (like wx, fltk,
motif, tk, etc.) often can't match, even when (like wx) they use Gtk
as a back end on Linux hosts. I suspect an Audacity built against a
more recent wxWidgets would look nicer, though.
In this case, Lee is really talking about the lack of anti-aliasing on
the fonts, though I could easily imagine other GNOME or KDE users
complaining that these apps that use less common toolkits don't abide
by their choice of desktop theme.
Anyway, at least wx-based apps aren't openly modern-desktop-hostile
like, say, cinelerra or snd.
