GTK+ "Ars was at FOSSCamp this weekend. Think of FOSSCamp as an 'un-conference' without a set agenda where the minds behind open source projects get together and plot world domination (and, err, ways to improve their code). One fascinating session (and one that shows how FOSSCamp works and why it's so productive) was given by Mirco Muller, who discussed using OpenGL in GTK applications. Muller - the developer behind Cairo-Clock and the LowFat image viewer - talked about the state of OpenGL support in desktop applications and described various techniques that developers can use to make OpenGL content integrate better with conventional GTK user interfaces."

NO ANIMATED ICONS

I'm sick to death of animated icons and animated ads. I spend money buying software that disables this cr#p.

I'm all for using the graphics card to off load things from the CPU onto the GPU but PLEASE leave animated icons and "stuff" optional. Use graphics and 3D graphics to make creating visually pleasing programs easier and not uglier or distracting from what you are trying to accomplish.
