Globalization has its nice bits. Today I got my hardcopy of the goat book via Amazon.

X platform GUI

I am still not sure, if we should try the X-platform approach. Possible toolkits are:

  • GTK (cons: looks like GTK everywhere, infamous C++ bindings)
  • qt (looks like a Windows GUI clone, would add $3K per developer if used commercially)
  • wxWindows (might die, might not die)
  • Mozilla (XUL sounds interesting, critique from a colleague of mine: it runs on every platform same bad - uh oh)
  • fltk (no idea yet, what it is)
  • Java (this will suck for a CPU intensive editor)
  • StarView (I already touched the old StarView - should I really do this again?)
