Its not unpredictable at all, it is easy to predict: if I'm using a Mac, 
it has Mac-style buttons with round corners. If I'm using Unix, it has 
Unix-style rectangle buttons. If I'm using Windows, it has whatever 
Windows uses.

If a user is using Mac OS X, and Unix, and Windows, they probably are 
not a novice user -- and if they are a novice, this is a good lesson 
that different OSes are different, look different, and behave different.
