Gnome "Theme development is a tedious and difficult task, and for the GTK devs to be so careless in breaking their API at every turn disrespects the many hours people put into making themes for it. [...] I was given to believe that this breakage stems from a Microsoft-like climate of preventing users from customizing their systems, and deliberately breaking the work of others so that your 'brand' is the best. Anytime I hear the word 'brand' being used in Linux, I know something valuable is being poisoned." I find the tone of this one a bit too harsh and overly negative at times, but his point still stands.

desktop environments with GTK

A DE is not an application, damn, can't you use the correct term segetroll?

When someone makes a DE, it takes one version of GTK and base the development on that version, if they want to upgrate to another version of GTK then they rebuild and make the necessary adjustments and workarounds to use that version, I haven't seen any DE developer complaining, have you? nope, but as always you make things out of thin air. I have no words to describe your ignorance.
