I've used them at various times. They're not updated very often. Also
without the theme packages & installer from Alexander, the resulting
applications look quite bad ... ie not something that I'd present to a
client and be able to hold my head high ...

Java less hassle? I doubt it. Keep in mind that you and I are amongst a
very small group of trailblazers using gtk+ on Windows. That's why it's
less than ideal at present. If you put some time into it ( ie scripting
the installation, or at least letting various developers know what's not
working ), things will improve. There are some very dedicated developers
working on the Windows port.
