    QT or GTK

    i was thinking about learning some GTK someday, but now im not sure. I was thinking that GTK was more unix like with restrications and more organized, but after reading the slashdot article today im not so sure.

    What do you guys think/use?

    Qt is awsome. You want to have a good understanding of C++ though.

    Would have to agree with Codeplug,

    QT is what I use form interface design, though it does require a sound understanding of C++.

    If you are more familiar with the way in which C works, then definently go for GTK.

    Again I will agree with both of the above posts.

    GTK+ was designed from the group up to be used in a C environment. And QT was designed for C++ (as far as I can tell). Ive only done some tweaking with gtk and qt but My preferences for what GUI API depends on what I write the base program for.

    It mostly seems to be personal preference. Also some QT can be ported to Windows pretty easily.
