Join us for a quick listing of the not-so-well-known GTK# apps and you will witness yourself that the platform is flourishing.

Re: And.. [Java]

Java doesn't integrate nicely with Gtk, hence does not fit in well with a Gnome desktop. There is java bindings for Gnome, but afaik they do not link Java AWT/Swing apps into Gtk but instead provide an alternative toolkit to AWT/Swing. There are not many Java/Gtk apps out there and Java/AWT/Swing apps don't integrate nicely into the Gnome desktop. Mono is focused on Gtk/Gnome but Java isn't and never will get the traction Mono now has on the Gtk/Gnome desktop. If the ball is in Sun's court, they've forgotten to hit it back for quite some time.
