That's nice, you do realize they moved to Linux from UNIX, right?The entire VFX industry has or is moving there pipelines to linux, windows is barely even used any more in this aspect. Adobe is the only one holding
everyone back from going linux only.
Digital Domain recently gave Krita huge props and or is using it for the Gi Joe movies, I think they even purchased a support contract.
ebassi explains the relationship between Gtk and clutter in this stackoverflow answer: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9...lutter-gtk-etc
I am still not certain that Gtk is in a bad situation. There are lots of great Gtk applications, and I haven't really noticed any decline in the last years.
It's a single sample point, and you can extrapolate anything from it if you really try.
In itself it means nothing.
Weighted together with the fact that there are still lots of great applications that use Gtk and new applications being written, I'd say it's a bit early to shout failure or death.
It is true that Qt seems to gain more traction than Gtk right now, and I think that is good since there are lots of cross-platform applications being written.
But I fail to see how the success of one toolkit somehow imply that all the others are failing. Because in that case Qt is obviously failing as well considering the large amount of iOS applications being written :P
