    Linux development

    I have been programming for a while in C++, MFC, .NET (using C++/CLI) etc. Did few projects in these frameworks/platforms.

    Now I would like to switch to Linux development. So need suggestions on what GUI framework or widget toolkit to use (like Qt, wxWidget etc). Basically, it would be great if that framework/toolkit have great resources as I most of the times rely on communities to get help from and also which is easier.

    Well, you suggested some of the best ones yourself : Qt is a good one as is wxWidget. GTK+ is also a frequently mentioned one. I'm pretty sure they are all pretty similar (in overall view, of course once you get used to one, you will probably not like the others! ).

    Some links:

    [I only scanned through those threads - I don't know how good they are].

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.
