Actually, yes, it is. Mac users don't want an application to be too
Windows-like, Windows users don't want an application to be too Mac-like
(we'll see how the latest version of Photoshop goes over), and isolating
all the differences in platform-specific modules while leaving the core
functionality in common modules is a lot of work. If it were easy, it
would be done more often.
