As I said, you can write Gnome applications in C++.

However, the underlying engine is written in C, and my bias says that's

Maybe, but I don't intend to install Gnome now, except to see what's
new. I think if the Gnome folk think they're going to reeducated
millions of Windows users easily, they're sadly mistaken.

Nor can the expect developers such as Sun (StarOffice), Netscape or
webdesigners (many of whom devlope for IE!) to comply, and the result
wil be ongoing confusion for Gnome users who will continue to have to
deal with all these insconsistencies..

Heck, I dare not inflict Red Hat Linux 8.x on my wife who could be sure
to complain that "it's different." I have entirely enough trouble moving
to 7.x from 6.x, and to OOo from SO 5.2.

Please, reply only to the list.
