RE: [linrad] Trolltech/Qt....WxWidgets

Apparently, I haven't checked the WxWindows/WxWidgets site in a while.  I
went there just after my original post and saw the name change.  Funny how
something can succeed for 11 years under the same monicker before little
Billy G. finally throws a tantrum and has his way.  I guess he just can't
stand to have any competition, however minor.

Wow what a great list of interesting suggestions.  On WxWindows, they are no
longer called that.  Microsoft talked to them softly behind doors with an
army of lawyers and caused them to rename it to WxWidgets.

This thread did cause me to go and look and it is an interesting alternative
to the huge and restrictive Qt.

The original post was a suggestion on how to use better tools to talk to
svgalib which Qt/Embedded apparently does. 

I am really glad this thread came up.  I was just about to start a huge
project in Qt.  I might reconsider.

What about GtkFB? Which is GTK for Frame-Buffers.
