    If all you know is PHP, this is a terrific way to transfer your skills to desktop apps. I think it's great.

    Learn a real language *cough* C++ python *cough* and then learn Qt

    If you want a GNOME specific app, you can learn GTK3 then

    i like this. a Qt Binding would also still great. Long time ago i looked at PHP for GTK2, but GTK is one of the biggest crap if you look on other platforms.

    If you think PHP is good but GTK is bad, you need to acquire an education. PHP is one of the worst things to exist in the programming world. It is a horrible language to start, it teaches bad conventions, it's VERY slow and thus very expensive to run, and it's too easy for noobs to make mistakes that will get websites hacked. It shouldn't be that easy. It's an abomination that needs to die out. Even Java is much faster.

    PHP can actually be used for non-web development too, such as CLI scripts.
    Its too bad this wasn't available years ago, back in the days of PHP-GTK.

    Now it feels a bit late, and people might as well use some other language instead, such as Python.
