Use QtLCL on all platforms and you'll get same result as with fpgui (of 
course Qt takes OS theme look, so that's difference definitelly, but you 
can get same look at all platforms with eg. -style windows ... which 
uses win95 style). QtLCL is also LCL. IMO, gtk2 (and gtk3) is kinda of 
kindergarten library and it'll never fit lcl needs.
