Hi, I myself try to convice my boss to let me program windows software using gtk+ and to port our software to linux systems later on. I've got three questions about that: 1) Does this paragraph (see below, copied from www.gtk.org) mean that it is allowed to use gtk+/win32 for proprietary software only if we don't charge our customers at all -- or the oposite, that we are allowed to develope windows software using gtk+ without being charged by the gtk+ people?GTK+ is free software and part of the GNU Project. However, the licensing terms for GTK+, the GNU LGPL, allow it to be used by all developers, including those developing proprietary software, without any license fees or royalties.
It means that you can use GTK+ for developing proprietary software without paying any licensing fees or royalties. (Suggestions for improving the wording appreciated...)
2) Is it true that the windows version of gtk+ is still 1.x and will not be ported to 2.x?
Absolutely not. Current windows versions of GTK+ are included with the GTK+-2.x source code.
3) I see sylpheed-claws working on windows very well -- but is it possible to integrate windows widgeds like movie playes into the gtk graphical interface?
I believe it is possible, but I haven't investigated the details. Regards, Owen
