Which theme were you using? From what I can tell, it looks like
'greybird' is about the only theme that supports GTK+ 3 at the moment,
so other themes will fallback to the default GTK+ 3 theme, which does
look a little Windows like. I guess it is still early days for GTK+3,
but hopefully more theme designers will pick it up soon and start
converting their old GTK+2 themes. Meanwhile, the greybird theme looks
quite nice. :)
