Can anyone give me a quick example of a call that works on one platform (say
Linux, or whatever) that has no good counterpart on another platform? It
doesn't matter which two platforms you choose. I just need an example that
witness the difficulty in translating GUI code from one platform to another.
Thanks.

How about OLE on Windows. It doesn't exist on Linux.

Table and Tree widgets don't exist on Motif.
