  The problem with X is that it has many more look and feels than on
Which one do you prefer - Xt, Motif, KDE, Gnome? Or do you want you app's
look and feel depend on whether do you run it under KDE or Gnome? What
if you run it under neither of this two? The questions on X are so numerous
that sometimes I think that it might be asier to bring Windows look and feel
(which I personaly kinda like) into X.

  Which "native set" does wxWindows use on X? My understandig taht it uses
ether Motif or GTK, which _you_ have to choose. Why then KDE is not native?
I do not think you can define very well what is native on X, unless you want
restrict yourself to Xt (which is dull).
