Re: Why GTK+ vs. GNOME?

  Personally I use the GNOME features in the code that I write rather than
sticking to Gtk+ - GTK+ just gives you the pretty easy widgets, GNOME
actually gives more features and behaviour.

One of the things which used to be a pain in the butt about GNOME was the
fact that for any program you downloaded you found you needed to
upgrade/get a handful of interdependent libraries all of which had
incompatible version requirements.

Why did I say 'used to'? Simple - Helix GNOME - finally I can keep
uptodate with Helix GNOME and have a large self consistent set of
libraries which most programs will build with.  I only use features which
are in the set of libraries with Helix GNOME.
