    MFC alternatives?

    Hi!

    I was wondering if there are some free, e.g "open source" alternatives to MFC? They do not have to be platform independent. I'm trying to learn to program GUI applications, and I have looked at a few linux variants (QT and gtk). But I thought it might be usefull to know my way around a few windows variants.

    Is there another proffessional package that allows for c++ style of writing that offers performance benefits?

    Thanks,

    Hubas

    Qt is free for non-commercial applications. You can try Qt.

    Nonetheless, MFC is quite powerful and easy. Why do you not like it?

    Hey!

    Thanks, for the quick reply. It's not that I don't like MFC it's just that I want to know if there are other alternatives available. One reason is that MFC might not always be available to me.

    Okay. Qt could be one alternative to MFC.

    wxwindows. It is a platform independent and is more like MFC than straight API.
