This is a common misconception. Gtk+ uses the windows native theming
dlls so look pretty good. See some of our screen shots:

If you do find any places where it doesn't match the native theme then
please report them in the Gtk+ bugzilla.

Is there something specific we could improve here?

Note that if you're building a standalone app then you can just bundle
all the Gtk+ .dll files in your apps install directory and it'll work
fine. So there's no need to have users install Gtk+ separately, you can
include all the stuff into one installer.
