Maybe... but one of the long-term goals is to makes them use the same
toolkit. Researching first which covers the needs. It's not very smart to
have a "Design Studio" collaborating between thems and have a different
There are amazing features on QT and on wxWidgets, also on GTK+, but maybe
a common toolkit would be simpler to develop and expand later.
What I mean, is that almost every design/media app is on C or C++. One of
the goals of the project is proviode a common language to talking. But
that's for the future.
It's faster develop on a high-level language like Java or C#, than on a
simpler one like C, C++. hat's why Vala was choosed: it's O*S (Open
Source) and it's a mask on top of C. Has an excelent performance and a low
For now, specifications are the target. Feel free to open bug reports to
start working on it. Surely projects will join us later, by now, we have
to think and research.

I can't agree more, but this started a year ago and it needed a name and a
