Microsoft Most websites glossed over this, but we didn't. Silverlight, once touted as Microsoft's answer to Adobe's Flash, has been retooled from its original purpose. Microsoft is betting big on HTML5 instead, turning Silverlight into the development platform for Windows Phone, and that's it. So... Silverlight is dead - long live Silerlight?

However, I love the Qt toolkit and how easy and powerful it is. When I port my app to Linux I hope to be able to do a Qt and a GTK+ version (because integration is extremely important IMO)


You will feel pretty stupid after doing both Qt and Gtk uis and seeing that they are identical under Gtk theme.

So what you are saying is that there is absolutely no reason to do GTK+? Remember that there's not only looks, but also feel. I believe that there's a need to actually create two versions, since KDE and Gnome are very different in that regard.

Right, unless you absolutely want to use C instead of C++.

Gtk has no different look or "feel" (whatever that means) from Qt when running under Gnome.

Really, they are not. If you find a difference it Qt app look and/or behavior compared to Gtk app, you should file a bug in QGtkStyle.
