SWTBot is cross platform, it supports Windows, linux, solaris(untested)
and mac, and the tests are not platform specific. SWTBot hides away the
differences between all platforms, so the tests are agnostic of the
platform on which they run.
SWTBot is quite mature, has been around for little over a year, and is
used by quite a few people. Not many projects at eclipse.org use it.
There are a few open source projects including Apache's Directory
Studio, Matrex, and a lot more
Feel free to ask questions on the eclipse.swtbot newsgroup
