aMSN is Tk based and a hugely popular chat client (on the grounds that it
does MSN Messenger, the de-facto standard in Europe, better than Gaim
does). There are one or two other "odd" apps like that such as Crossover ;)

GNU Emacs in CVS uses GTK2 though. Hopefully they'll get around to doing a
new release before the day the X server is obsoleted by mind implants.
