    A GUI configurator!

    Oh wait, where is a Linux screenshot? Oh please don't tell me the GUI is Windows-only??? :<

    Edit: never mind. The GUI is written in Qt.

    See? Qt is used by huge industries, unlike GTK...

      What a waste of space the bottom right of their UI... That's what "about" windows are for.

        Why wouldn't it be when Qt provides commercial support which GTK does not?

          Because Qt provides commercial support unlike GTK. Did you try to prove "Qt superiority" by that? Well, try again.

              isn't "commercial support" a reason to declare its superiority though?

                Eh, it's OK, they have a GUI at all, that's already amazing vs the usual commandline invocations.

                  Depends. Do you remember when they chose to stop releasing source code of LTS releases and community can do nothing about it? With GTK maybe you don't have commercial support but such situation won't happen so somebody would say that GTK is superior. Why start another flamewar?

                    GTK never had LTS releases, so it's hard to argue this is a point where GTK is superior.
