Because GTK is unfathomable, while Qt is easy?

If you really find GTK+ to be unfathomable, remind me never to hire you as a coder. It's overly verbose and a bit convoluted, but by no means unfathomable.

Mmm, please, let me reword:

Because it is extremely wordy and convoluted while Qt is easy?

"extremely wordy" is not a valid reason to discard a toolkit, I could write your statement as "it makes code easier to read", now convoluted? how so?.

If you put GTK in front of your average Windows or Mac developer who has no notion of Linux GUI politics they're going to laugh in your face at the prospect of using it, and then have the blood drain out of their face as they realise you are serious.

I would never hire anyone who thought it was a good idea to use it. Anyone who does has too much Linux desktop history about them and I think that's the mistake Intel have made here.
