Comment Not quite ready for prime time (Score 1) 201

This article really makes me want to bring out an old trolling account...

Miro is not quite ready for prime time:

1) It uses GTK on Windows. This makes the app look childish. Why couldn't they use internal Windows decorations?
2) The interface is not up to snuff. It looks unprofessional.

Now, the good stuff:

1) I can finally use it as a replacement for iTunes to listen to my podcasts. I have tried this with each major Miro release and this is the first one that does what I would expect it to. If only it did this without looking as ugly as sin.

If I was a troll I might throw in something about how Gnome used to use GTK and how this made it also look childish. It wasn't until Ubuntu switched Gnome to something other than GTK that it began to look usable.
