Each OS and widgetset combination will have different results.

One thing is compile everywhere and look native and other is compile
everywhere and keep same look and fill across platforms.

Lazarus widgetsets usually try to match the target operative system
look and feel so a GTK2 application in Linux will look very similar to
a GTK2 application in Windows, but different than a native Windows
application. To keep look and feel across platforms use fpGUI instead
