    std::cout is so 1980s. you should use std::format

    Even though C has its fair share of problems, one of its redeeming features is having an ultra stable ABI (talking decade, or even more here).
    c++'s abi stability story is superior to c, it has inline namespaces

    Why GTK 4.0 and not some more reasonable number, like 140.0?

    lol, you put firefox, rust and success in one sentence. the only thing missing is layoffs

    the real question is how much did you pay for it in return for taking your stupid ideas into consideration?

    There are plenty of new features for developers. these will eventually impact the end users too.

    One direct benefit is potentially better performance. Look at the fishbowl demoand compare it with GTK3. hundreds of icons in GTK slow it down, while GTK4 can handle thousands.

    The changes in data structure and list models etc should also help massively ease and speed up many use cases.

    "With that kind of mindset, you should just stick with GTK1 and Qt1."

    Are these better than Motif?

    GTK theming is fully CSS based. I'm not a web designer, however, if I recall correctly,
    CSS is a big variable definition itself, isn't it?
