Having basically grown-up with Macs, I dislike anything that does not feel
quite "right", in the Mac sense. While Tk is a wonderful solution for
certain problems, it is very hard to get all the details that Mac users are
used to right (though maybe not impossible). Other reasons: Tk eats lots of
memory, and it does not perform satisfactory on older machine (of which
there are plenty). But of course my main reason was that I didn't need
support for other platforms to begin with...
