In the past I have resolutely demanded native Windows look
and feel in my apps. In fact, I have been tiresome on the topic.
Now I am changing my mind. Lots of prominent Windows apps now
depart from Microsoft LAF, and I have the impression that users
are getting used to it. I still think the usual File menu
items and file open/save dialogs should be standard, but I
am less concerned about other controls. For a look
at how to really do controls, check out software for
kids. Just my 1.e-2$.
