widget tool kits

One of the most beautiful aspects of living this times is that most
of the walls have come down.
The wall that existed between Unix and MS-Windows has, greatly,
fallen, so, when writing a program we must consider Unix and MSW
users. However, with the huge number of widget-toolkits promising
portability and speed in most of the operating systems, I find it hard
to decide which of the C/C++ widget-toolkits to use.
So, I would like to ask everyone what Widget Tool Kit you recommend
that will not only make my programs portable, but that will also
increase my marketability as a programmer/developer.

Thank you in advance

In c.l.c++ the usual recommendations are Qt and wxWidgets, they will
both give you portability, search the archives for more extensive
discussions on the subject.

As for increasing your marketability as a programmer I do not think any
one of them will be better, whichever you choose there is still a
possibility that your future employer will use the other. How many
different toolkits you know is not nearly as interesting as how quickly
you will learn another one.


PS. Cross-posting to so many groups is seldom a good idea, follow-ups
set to c.l.c++.
