Gnome GNOME hacker Seth Nickell has written a lengthy PDF and accompanying blog post with a number of very interesting ideas for GNOME 3.0. I pondered putting this up on the front page, but since that usually only attracts the "It's not what I'm used to so it sucks"-crowd, I decided to put it up here. Be sure to read the blog post, the PDF, and the comments on the blog post to get the entire picture.

There are reasons to choose GTK over QT for programmers who are not targeting GNOME. Maybe because their app is written in C and easier to bind to the language they use.


No "binding" is needed to use C code from C++. All you need is a good ol' linker. Most C programs can be compiled with C++ compiler, even.

Perhaps it is because GTK is just a toolkit and a lot slimmer than QT.


I doubt developers really care about this kind of "slimness", being that Gtk+ apps mostly target desktop computers.

Maybe they just prefer the look and feel of GTK.


Check out QGtkStyle.
