which Azureus to install for MDK 10.1, GTK or Motif


I'm new to Linux so go easy on me please.

I went to d/l and install Azureus, but when offered to choose between GTK & Motif, I had no idea which one to use for Mandrake 10.1 with KDE 3.2.

Any clues for a noob? (My system specs are in my sig below)

Thanks in advance.

If you want Azureus be pretty, use the GTK version.

If you want Azureus be responsive, use the Motif version.

Responsive? What exactly do you mean?
I used to use the GTK version , but suddenly now it crashes ! ( Here's the thread for annyone interested http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=292268 )
I now use the motif version which isn't that pretty but works fine.

So what are the really differences between motif anf gtk??

GTK is Gnome Tool Kit which gives a good GUI feel. Motif is very light on memory and CPU resources so the program response much quicker than GTK version. The GUI look of Motif sacifices a pretty GUI for a speedy GUI.
