GTK is nice, but not my dream being a user. I'd wish it would support
using the keyboard as well as Motif or Qt. And then i severely miss the
possibility of true tear off menus like in Motif and even Tcl/Tk. The tear
off toolbars are not very practical in comparison IMHO. Check out asWedit
and tkinfo for a very good implementation of tear off menus. This is IMHO
true ergonomics for the mouse impaired.
