True, but have you ever used GTK+ applications in Windows? They look completely out of place. Not only that, but they got an
*horrible* redraw rate (resizing windows, putting one over another, etc). I have used GIMP and Gaim for a while and I stopped since they are alien to the rest of the environment. Last time I tried them (about 4 months for GAIM, last week for GIMP), they don't even use the Win32 standard dialog boxes!

In my opinion, the Win32 port was done as an afterthought. I guess the original poster meant: is _decent_ Windows support so much to ask?
