    Less interesting work being done on WxWidgets? Qt is actually pushing forward with big ideas and is coming through. GTK... 3.0 was an evolutionary step, not a revolutionary jump, we'll need to see whats on the roadmap for GTK+ 4 to see if they have any big ideas for the future. WxWidgets...I couldnt even tell you when the last release was or what the version # is, let alone any "Ooh pick me pick me!" Features

    This is a fairly big loss for GTK.

    I was just using Wireshark last night wondering if we'd see a GTK3 update.

    GTK+ 3.x is increasingly disappointing. First it was no backwards compatibility with existing 2.x themes. Then the notebook scroll capability was removed. And in the most recent terrible decision from the GNOME people, GTK+ 3.10 now ignores the gtk-menu-images and gtk-button-images settings (cf. https://git.gnome.org/browse/gtk+/co...dc28819ffe0657 and https://git.gnome.org/browse/gtk+/co...93449722198d89), meaning that GTK+ 3.x applications will no longer display icons in menus and on buttons unless said applications explicitly enable them.

    Not to mention the default GTK+ 3.x theme looks considerably worse than QT's default under KDE.

    I really wish someone would have forked GTK+ 2.x. But since I think it's too late now to save that sinking ship, QT seems the way to go.

    wx comes with a *ribbon* widget. And since it uses native widgets where possible, that's a *native ribbon on Windows*. !!!!

    Thanks, but no. springlobby client which uses WxWidgets is terribly slow and ugly.

    That's the only logical course of action.

    I don't like the look of GTK, so I do my image editing in a hex editor instead of GIMP.

    In other words, it makes perfect sense moving to Qt if you care about OSX and Windows. Even on Linux the Gtk OpenGL support hasn't been ported to Gtk3 yet and no plans for doing so.
    I'll just leave this here (looks beautiful on Vista btw.).
    Note that I'm a Qt user myself.

    I have never programmed using Qt before and after reading this article I got motivated enough and wanted to see how it compares to gtk. Turns out I never got as far as writing any code at all. I could not even get started! All they seems to care about is advertising Qt Creator all over the documentation and tutorial pages. What is wrong with a few lines of "hello world" code and a simple gcc command to compile it like they have for gtk. To me Qt now feels extremely bloated, not simple at all and especially not particularly great. The only thing lacking with gtk is proper cross platform support.
