e-mail : Thunderbird
instant msg : Gaim
Audio editing : Audacity
CD burning : X-cd-roast
Video : Gxine
FTP : gFTP
So is it just me or does it seem that the majority of the ‘better quality’ Open Source apps are done in GTK instead of QT.
And if this is the case then why would this be? Is GTK more powerful? Easier to program with?
Just a bit of food for thought...

I run FluxBox and use a great deal of GTK apps. Pan, Mozilla, Gaim, Nautilus-burner, gFTP, etc.
In my oppinion, QT is all about the eye-candy. GTK apps may not be as pretty but they have a simpler layout and just seem more complete.
There is always an exception to every rule though and that begs a question. Considering that there is an outstanding QT burning program, why would anybody that prefers KDE opt to use X-cd-roast as opposed to k3b?OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?

SuSE 9.1 Pro
Firefox, Evolution, Gaim, Liferea, X-Chat, XMMS, gFTP, Pan, Kate, Konqueror (file manager), Konsole, VMware, Open Office, Rekall, Gimp 2, Azureus, TVTime, K3b, VideoLan...
You look at the list, and it's heavy towards GTK...
