On the programming side, Gtk is kind of lame (the programmer has to do a lot of dumb things, like tell it that each UI element should be shown). Qt is kind of overly complicated (some stuff in a language barely recognizable as C++, some stuff in a custom language).

There's really no reason not to learn Gtk; it'll take a week and be informative.

I agree... although I am in the "Qt is much better than Gtk" camp, I've written software for both, and I much prefer the C language to C++. Though I generally always reach for Qt when doing a GUI app, I think the time I spent learning enough to do basic Gtk apps was worthwhile, and it has led to me using glib in other projects.
