This is maybe the most dangerous attitude we GNUstep folks can have!!! gtk+ and 
Qt are *not* insufficient, they proof the contrary every day. The fact that 
their API is not as elegant as GNUstep does not make them bad or even 
unusable!!! I just don't understand why one still can say that gtk and other 
toolkits are insufficient, when GNOME and KDE are 100% usable and have an 
installed base that exceeds the one of OPENSTEP, NEXTSTEP, Mac OS X and GNUstep 
together by factors!

We can only 'win' if we take our competitors for serious! 

cheers, Phil
