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?

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


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.

What I meant is, Gtk makes sense if you dislike C++ and want to stick to "pure C". Qt has no maintained C binding.

I'd go as far as to say preferring GObject to C++ has got to be some kind of yet-unknown mental disorder, but that does happen.

Quite true. I really like C and it is what I have most experience with (programming mcus etc.) but looking at GObject makes me want to puke so I would only consider doing OO with it in the most dire of circumstances.
