Re: Is GTK+ 3.x 2x slower than GTK+ 2.x?

The problem is that nobody is really thinking about GUI applications
anymore. For the phone apps all you need is to handle very few data
and very few widgets but make them look nicely. Most just go Web for
everything.

I was shocked by the bad performance of the tree list view from the
beginning, so much that i'm now back to FOX toolkit. 4 month of my
life wasted (about $20,000 :-).

And when i look at the code, i know what is to blame. Like Java it's
an incompetent total over engineered inflexible architecture. A total
rewrite by experts would be necessary. Unfortunately nobody is funding
base infrastructure anymore.
