Linux While it may seem like Linux-only projects are betraying their loyal base by developing Windows or OSX versions, I would argue that cross-platform development is actually better for Linux as a whole, better for individual software projects and their developers, and ultimately better for Linux users.

Bibble Pro looks equally excellent on both Linux and Windows. I've never tried the Mac version. It uses the QT framework.

You mean Qt?

QT is QuickTime.

It was crystal clear what I meant. If you want me give you a list of instances of where application developers use the phrase "QT" instead of "Qt" I'll do so, so you can write to them and educate them too. However I suspect they have better things to do with their time.

If You talk about http://bibblelabs.com/index.html , then that's exactly what I meant to look ugly on all platforms.

Well, the word ugly might be the wrong word here. It looks alien and it brings its own habbits with it, so it clearly falls out of the user experience on any given platform.

Speaking from the perspective of a photographer, you could not be more wrong in this instance. It meets my expectations of what an interface should look like. There are good reasons why professional photographic workflow applications look similar. Its interface is minimal, dark, and gets out of the way when I want it to. The whole point is that I do not want it to look like other desktop applications, because it meets different needs.
