Some people also feel it is wrong to require Gtk+ for an app that is
intended to run anywhere.
But wait! Some people may not even have X installed, so your
application is crap if it does not run outside it.
Some people may not even have a computer...
You can see this line of reasoning leads you :-)
The GNOME provide a nice framework for building applications. Gtk+ is
the GUI toolkit under it, providing general-purpose widgets with
little policy on how they are used. The GNOME libraries provide the
policy and some other goodies as well; these are intended to make it
easy to write consistent-looking applications.
