I genuinely do not know the answer to this but I'm truly curious as to why Finale's GUI looks so different on a Mac than a PC. Anyone care to enlighten me on the history behind this? Obviously MM could make them look the same if they wanted to, right?

I believe Finale calls OS-specific external libraries to do much of the UI; that may be what you're seeing. A Windows window or button looks different from a Mac's window or button. It's good that it look "normal" on each platform, I think.

MM is sticking to the Windows MDI concept on Windows (which was the original FinWin design), which IMO is the main UI difference.
