One example that (almost) applied for me was where the target display is 
not an OS, and indeed the viewer doesn't think they are looking at a 
'computer', e.g. an information display in a museum.

I started doing something like this for a local organisation, but their 
funding never materialized. But while talking about it, they had no idea 
whether they'd use Macs or PCs or most likely both, and  they expected 
it to look the same regardless, and they wanted the content creator (who 
would typically only have one of the platforms to try it out on) to be 
able to get a good idea of how things would look.
