1. GTK+ and GNOME will clearly be very successful and widespread in the
future. Many companies need them. They have a bright future.
2. gtkmm has matured and demonstrated more understanding of API
stability than most proprietary toolkits. Over the past few years we
have had the following stable gtkmm releases: gtkmm 1.2, 2.0, 2.2. gtkmm
2.4 has already been started. We are state-of-the-art. Nobody else is
even up-to-date with modern C++.

Feel free to add gtkmm-specific functionality to Anjuta, KDevelop,
eclipse etc. There will be no, and should be no, gtkmm-specific IDE.

You need to ask those companies. We have a book that they can publish.
Nobody is refusing to write books for them.

Erm, yes, that's the point.
