I've been involved in IT for a number of years, and have been programming for a while. One thing that has always surprised me is programming GUI's with Win32.
Win32 still seems to me to be the past, present and for a short time still the future of GUI programming, but what else exists, or what excites me more, what are the more radical options? OpenGL gui's for example, 3D guis? etc.
I haven't much experience programming GUIs or knowledge of alternatives, but that is partly because it bores me a little when compared to other types of programming, but I would like to know what is out there.
Can anyone offer me any suggestions on different options out there for GUI programming, the more radical the better, but also what competitors are there to the Win32 api?
Also, Does anyone here actively avoid programming with the Win32 api?
