We could also do worse :-) , given : 1/ the needed time that won't be available 2/ the fact that people have highly various needs for a GUI. 3/ that graphic designers are already trained on flash/web technologies (that can be used to do beautiful interfaces at cheap prices). >>I think a better question is: could enough people agree on its design? You could check notus ( , which was developped by some boosters I think, and which has a modern c++ approach and also design documents. If you are looking for a minimalist 'open window' gui library, I think it's possible to find very good multi-platform projects that can do that (dlib, cimg, ...). Best regards, Pierre Morcello
