Question Gnome - GTK; KDE - Qt. Is there anything else?

Do we have only two toolkits GNU/Linux programs are based on? Or there are more that are used in GNU/Linux GUI?

Some mainstream ones are ncurses (midnight commander), fltk (dillo), openmotif (xpdf?), fox (rezound)... there are probably many more.

Some other pieces of software that can fit more-or-less the concept of "toolkit" are X (yes, X itself), java, wxwidgets, the enlightenment foundation libs, etc.

windows libs

And there are a very few that use only the TK/TCL libs.
I like those, portable almost to a fault.
