I've tried using ttk, and it's not too bad on Windows, but it doesn't
seem to help a jot on Linux. Most Linux users seem to be able to cope
without a problem, but the old gray Motify look seems a bit dated.
When I do try to use ttk on Linux, I just seem to end up with a
mixture of two different completely non-native vaguely retro-looking
widgets.
