GTK+ a Windowing toolkit for operating systems other than Unix?

Dec 10, 1998, 12:41 (1 Talkback[s])

Netscape's Ramiro Estrugo says there's an interesting discussion going on in a Mozilla newsgroup about moving non-Unix versions of Mozilla to the GTK+ toolkit.

Mozilla has already standardized on GTK+ for all future X development.

If you are interested in watching these discussions take place, please do so, but only contribute a post if you really have some valuable facts to add. Other opinions, speculations, or advocacy should be posted only to talkbacks here on Linux Today (or some other area away from the Mozilla list).

We are having an interesting discussion on:


About the possibility of using GDK (and thus GTK+) as the windowing toolkit for Mozilla on platforms other than unix.

There are many opinions circulating both in favor and against GTK+. Im afraid a lot of these are based purely on opinion, and not on facts.

Which is why I am asking for your help.

If you can in anyway contribute to this discussion, please feel free to do so.

I know most of you are hackers who are not interested in advocacy, and I feel the same way. However, I think that folks that have more experience with GTK+ might be able to contribute (in GTK+'s favor) to the discussion.
