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?

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.

Can always use mm bindings for gtk (everyone says that they are "better" than pure gtk anyway). Not that I'm defending the need to do a gtk version. Seems superfluous.

Yeah, but what about C#? I know Gtk has Mono and Gtk# but what's the status of QtSharp or Qyoto/Kimono? How are they coming along?

Anyway, I won't get doing the Linux version this year so I'll wait and see what approach I will take. But if Qt can give me what I need then maybe I will use only that. ;)
