    Don't let the toolkit language stop you. It's easy to wrap gtk, and the advantage is that it doesnt try to put some alien classes everywhere that make use of state if the art libraries harder.

    Look at gtk and wxwidgets, search for c++ bindings or roll your own.

      What do you think?
      Holy shit KNOME was a portent

          It tries to compile natively to even win98. Means it's core features are the least common denominator. If you are content with what's available however it will look (almost) native anywhere

            With the C++ language and library enhancements over the years a fair amount of the Qt plumbing can be synthesized these days (there has been preliminary work to use reflection and introspection to replace moc, for example), and there are now more cases where a Q[something] can be replaced by a std::[else]. But it would be a lot of work just to maintain the status quo, and no project of any size would choose to do so.

              You are welcome.

              If you know python you might start there (with those bindings) BTW. Alot easier to evaluate the toolkits.

                Thanks for clarification. It seems there's quite a lot wxWidgets applications. I'll for sure check more of them.

                  Found an article on that on Linuxreviews and it sounded like an April Fools joke but it might happen actually in some form if this Qt debacle goes on for too long.

                    My personal opinion:
                    If a company takes such a drastic step, I assume that it either has big financial problems, or it's mis-managed.
                    In the first case, it might not be around for long in its current form.

                      Even Dolphin Emulator moved away from wx to Qt.
