I don't see anything Gnome-related in that list that I didn't mention.
I wouldn't say native-looking, but rather native-inspired. I'm using OS X occationally and it's very clear when an application is built with Qt. Things usually look almost native, but there's always some things here and there that's not right.
If you want native, build a native UI per platform and share common code between them.
At some point you just have to pick what you want to use. RHEL and its clones are intended to be a stable environment. 99+ % of users should be ok with the version of Gimp bundled with the system. Should the Gimp developers bend over backwards to support old enterprise systems? Maybe, but there would be a cost.
You need lots from GNOME project to get GTK3
Can you be more specific? GTK+ does not have a lot of dependencies to begin with, and most of them is not directly related to the Gnome project; GLib, GdkPixbuf, Pango, ATK and GObject according to the documentation . The rest of them are external.
That is absolutely not the case. GTK+ started out as part of the Gimp project, but is now developed separately under the Gnome project.
Every use of GTK outside of GIMP is a problem. Try running the latest CentOS with GNOME and see if you can run a newer GIMP. You can't. You will have to do all manner of things and you still will not get 100%.
I don't see how this is specific to GTK. If a program depends on newer versions of libraries, then you obviously need the newer libraries.
I have discussed this topic with GTK, GIMP and GNOME projects and at the end of the day it comes back to GIMP/GTK developers. They say GTK is for GIMP. So every developer out there would be well advised not to use GTK any longer.
But it's also for a lot of other projects. Gnome is largely based on GTK, and it's commonly used outside the Gnome project as well.
You don't need to run Gnome to run GTK 3. I'm using it right now on just fvwm.
Lots of adjectives. Explain what you yhink is wrong with it instead of just saying that you dont like it.
If I remember correct the Gimp guys had started with Motif. Early versions of Gtk+ was more or less a non-strict reimplementation of Motif, but that changed quite rapidly after a while.
yayy flappy birds coming to linux
Technically it was, Android/Linux as opposed to GNU/Linux.
Shouldn't we concentrate on developing 4G first?
Why? It's been in deployment since 2009. 5G is the next natural step.
1. Guy flies radio-controlled model plane.
3. Guy is in court.
What happened a step 2?
As long as I can use it from VB6 I'm happy.
No one has ported it as far as I know, but it is technically feasible and should mostly be a matter of redesigning the user interface to work with the Sailfish interface guidelines.
There's no problem in running old code as long as the environment you're running it in can be modernized. This is why you should preferably have access to the source code, that makes it much easier to adapt the software to a new environment.
