Graphics, User Interfaces The desktop metaphor has served our computing needs well for the last decade. It has started however, to show its age over the last years. For office users it is still adequate but for everyone else it is often awkward and slow. Since a computer is no longer confined in the office, but in some cases serves also as the entertainment hub in our living rooms, new User Interfaces are required. In some areas the foundations are already in place while in others users are silently suffering every day, having to cope with inefficient and unproductive UIs.

> take a look at krita - its 1.5 release added to the last release several features Gimp has been trying to add for YEARS. adjustment layers and full colorspace independence - these 2 are seemingly impossible to add to Gimp, and where easy for Krita. the power of a good framework shows.

You are misinformed. Krita's success is the result of close team work. Framework is barely related to it.

Sounds very much like typical trolling on programming language A vs. programming language B.
