Widgetsets are adapter libraries that provide an interface between a platform-inpedentent sourcecode and platform-specific system functions. Thus they allow for development of platform-native software without requiring to change the source code among platforms.

Therefore, widgetsets form the platform-sensitive "glue" between LCL and operating system.
