Er, no. GTKmm is merely is the nicest gui library from your personal point of view, not from the
developer point of view. It is only your opinion, not a general truth. Other people find Qt much,
much nicer -- and that is their opinion. Some people express that opinion rather well, like
Guillaume does in http://www.telegraph-road.org/writings/gtkmm_vs_qt.html.
Personally, I think that that the Qt-is-not-C++ meme is pure nonsense caused by prejudice.
If it weren't C++, my C++ compiler couldn't compile it. It can, so it is. Whether or not you like its
use of generated macros and generated C++ is your opinion, but it doesn't change the language at
all. They are convenient, and in about ten years of Qt coding, they haven't hindered me when
debugging at all. The introspection and runtime flexibility it gives me is very valuable.
And one real fact is that people using Qt are very productive. That's easily proven by seeing all
the things that are produced using Qt.
