And don't forget glade, since glade3 it's fun to make GUIs :)
Our company develops business applications using C# / Gtk# / Glade# /
GTK+/GTK# gives us a permissable license (LGPL), a _very_ stable ABI/API
(didn't break since GTK+ 2.0, and today we are at 2.12) and workable
Gettext integrates very well on windows using Mono.Posix.dll, glade also
supports I18N through gettext out of the box.
Theming is indeed a bit strange/ugly in GTK+, not well documented, but
is very flexible.
Gtk# builds on windows lack behind Gtk# on linux, like there is no Gtk#
2.10 installer for windows yet. This is not really a GTK+ nor GTK#
issue, but a porting/community issue. GTK# is an official GTK+ binding
but there are no official windows ports/builds. Paco is doing them as
good and often as he can (and they are _very_ good), but there is
In total I am very happy what GTK# gives us (the company) and it works
I have no experience with QT neither Kimono.
