In my earliest experience with LiveCode, aka Revolution 1.1.1, we were
using it on the irix variant of unix.  Our users were so accustomed to the
file dialogs that when we migrated to Windows, I enabled the UNIX file
selector to ease their painful transition.  Eventually, like 3 years later,
I turned it off and went native.  They were not pleased, but adapted anyway.
