Graphics, User Interfaces I had to reread Bulia's email three times. It was one of those nigh-mythical events that you read happens in Open Source projects, but never see in person. Yet, amazingly, here it was, and I knew Fred's patch would instantly double Inkscape's utility.

win32 gtk performance
by Richard Spindler on Thu 3rd Jun 2004 06:06 UTC

There is something wrong with the way win32 redraws windows and UI-Elements.

Other Popular Crossplatform-UI Toolkits like FLTK or the FOX-Toolkit fixed this win32 design-issue by introducing evil workarounds and other neccesary quirks. But since Gtk is primarily targeted at a X11 Environment, nobody fixed it on win32 yet.

BTW. Work is being done to provide a decent win32 implementation of gtk: http://gtk-wimp.sourceforge.net/
