    I don't understand why a Red Hat employee would support this. Did Microsoft get rid of their CLA?

    Relying on software that requires a CLA is unacceptable. Isn't it?

    "Watch closely to see how competitors to Canonical torture the English language in their efforts to justify how those toolkits should support Windows but not Mir."

    Thumbs down

    Well this was pointless...Focusing attention on the platforms you natively support instead of a platform that doesn't even want you would make more sense to me.

    My native platform is Windows: excluding 1 hour at home, I am surrounded at work by Windows only machines.

    As for one I see many usages that you may use like Gimp, Inkscape, or other small applications that are ported from Linux to Windows. If you are a devel at least to have a version of the environment to test on Windows. If you want to migrate .Net applications you may just use Mono and Gtk 3 and reboot. If you want to contribute a patch to Shotwell you can take the sources, compile them on Windows and do the patch. It would be silly to install an entire OS for just working on a small fix.

    GTK isn't relying on Windows. A volunteer send some patches and the GTK maintainer pushed out a build with those patches making a Windows *port* available. The porting itself wasn't done by Red Hat and Red Hat maintainers will often take patches to support even competitors c.f SUSE patches supporting a different dependency resolver in Spacewalk.

    If you look at the push buttons, the GIMP ones are way too fat like in Gnome, and that can be seen in practically any GIMP interface window. There is more to actually matching a theme than matching just colors.

    Also you can notice the misplaced triangle in the pixels button in the center of the GTK+ dialog.

    Default More evidence

    These 2 screenshots comes directly from the Wireshark blog. Again since GTK+ do not handle other non nix platforms as a first class citizen, you end up with gui's that looks as native as this on a Mac OS (sarcasm here, lol)


    Instead, Qt looks like a real Mac app

    That's a really minor detail...
