I'd really like to learn how to write a Linux GUI. But I really don't want to decide which graphics toolkit is the least offensive to use.
GTK looks nice, but seems to be paying everyone off. Qt is not open source and people seemed bummed about whatever license thing I don't have time to read about. I'm not sure what to choose.
@redeagle I haven’t personally written an application with GTK or QT yet, but I’d go for GTK if I were to write a graphical application right now. Some people are conflicted over theming with GTK, but I think it’s just growing pains that we’ll get over eventually.
@bugaevc I wish I didn't have to. Like, I can just make something and it would work without looking goofy cause it's a different library.
@redeagle my vote goes to Motif for that comfy 80s feeling and making sure it never runs on anything but X. 😁👌
