Hm... I don't want to start a flame war here (same goes for the VB
thread), but I feel that your comment is a bit too much generalization
about cross platform development environments. I also had much
disappointing experience with these kind of libraries, but I found that
the Qt lib is quite superior to all that I've seen before, so please at
least take a look at it before you give judgement.
