The Toolkit Wars 2.0: GTK+ 3.0 vs. Qt 4 vs. Clutter

Posted 08-18-2010 at 01:30 AM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

Now that GTK+ 2.90 (a.k.a. 3.0 Beta) is out, we now have three head-to-head toolkits, all with advanced graphics, to deal with. How do these toolkits stack up? That's up to your comments.

To start it with my opinion: I would put Clutter at the top, followed by Qt and lastly GTK+. The reason for this is that Cairo (being the drawing API in GTK+) is 2D instead of 3D, and we all know that's really old fashioned.

So now i am on day 5.

Java gives me a bit of a headache, but I think I will become friends with it with time.
