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.

What's keeping GTK alive is that literally thousands of applications depend on it, including, but not limited to, the GNOME DE.

Yes a software ecosystem has been built around GNOME and GTK. It's a shame. The prominence of GNOME however is what keeps the system going.


There are reasons to choose GTK over QT for programmers who are not targeting GNOME.


Qt has a better toolkit, is much better for cross-platform development, and is far better when it comes to documentation.

GTK is used for the wrong reasons. Toolkits should be chosen based on technical merit and not for the purpose of leveraging a user base.
