GTK+ The GIMP toolkit (GTK+) matures to include yet another platform. This project aims to bring native GTK+ support to the Apple Mac OS X platform. The basic implementation is sponsored by Imendio AB and the work so far has been done by Anders Carlsson (of Imendio).

segedunum has yet to discover about himself what everyone knows only too well.

He, he, he. I know people don't like it but the fact that ther are no sensible comments or answers to anything I've brought have only confirmed what I already know.

i wonder what toolkit and desktop segedumum is referring to here. as if we didn't know.

The one that actually makes business sense ;-). This isn't a religious war I'm afraid - it's there in black and white and it was described why in that little paragraph ;-).

knowledge and judgement of what is best is equivelent to his (poor) knowledge of physics

He, he, he. You think chaos theory is about physics?! Christ. And Newton's laws talk about complex stimuli do they? Good God. I take it you slept through that class?

Do some reading around on both sides for your little comments before making posting them as anonymous. I notice I didn't get a reply to that comment apart from a -1 score, presumably because you just didn't like it. There seems to be a pattern developing.......

we are expecting him to state that the world is flat at some point.

Well some would call spending $25,000+ (note the plus) on something that will never recoup it's investment a King Canute operation. At least the world being flat seemed plausible ;-).

i was obviously much more awake than you ever were considering that you claimed that newtons laws disproved chaos theory. perhaps you aren't aware that newtons laws came centuries before chaos theory.

The concept of Newton's Laws disproves Chaos Theory as a concept. I'm sure at some point in time you could come up with something approximate that appeared to fit what was happening, but that's all it would be - fitting what was happening. It was only when someone gained more knowledge and comprehension of what was going on (Newton) that we understood. Like I said, Chaos Theory is something you use to explain something you don't understand or comprehend. Einstein was dead right although he didn't know it, and he and us just don't have enough knowledge to explain many, many things yet. Coming up with half-cocked theories based on probability is not an explanation.

Since when was chaos theory proved anyway, and really, what's it got to do with physics? It's been widely recognised that global chaos theory and other fields of worthy study are complete bollocks. They explain nothing.

However, you've succeeded in going completely off-topic and not answering any of the points made. A round of applause.

no i don't. chaos theory is maths. chaos theory has a great many applications - in physics, finance, design, chemistry, you name it.
