I didn't vote because none of the options cover everything that I do. I use both QT and GTK, as well as SDL with custom OpenGL GUI code or Crazy Eddie's GUI.

I think a lot of devs use multiple GUI APIs. Perhaps a better way to phrase the question is "what is your preferred GUI API?", or something like that.

I've been trying to use strictly X libraries for a Windowmaker dockapp I've taken over, but Gnome and KDE don't behave nicely and stop some functions from working like they should (XGrabPointer, for example).

I'm thinking of implementing the ability to choose GTK / QT during compile like some other apps do, just so I can get those functions working, but I hate being forced into it.

(edited to add a missing comma)

why make do you make the poll anonymous?
* because i dont know any better
* because i like to piss off people who would like to see who voted for what
* because i believe in a worldwide constitutional right to an anonymous vote
* what poll? did i make a poll?

please anyone who makes polls, and makes them anonymous, feel free to vote.

The only purpose of showing the people who voted is so you could do what? Attack them for their opinion?

Who cares.

the reason i say this is that you deal with so many people on here, and you only get little bits and pieces of info all spread out.. its hard to put together what type of person you are talking to.. i think that by seeing who votes how in polls, you can add small blocks of personality to the nicknames..

just my opinion..


Pauli,
oh yeh, i forgot to tell you with the earlier post. shut the hell up

I use Java at work so I don't have to care a lot about the client's platform. We have clients running Windows, Linux and MacOSX.
