Best graphics api for GUI?

P: n/a
Hi, what api would you all recommend for doing GUIs? Since I am primarily a
linux user, I was thinking of the GDK set, but having programmed GUIs in
Java for a few years now (which is exceptionally easy, but perhaps only
because I'm used to it), I was wondering if there were any 'easier' (for
want of a better word) c++ gui apis one could consider?

Cheers,
Ben

The QT graphics toolkit uses C++ and has a great designer. It is used by
KDE.

wxWindows is well maintained.

However, why C++? Why not a softer language, like Ruby, with higher odds of
helping you get something done rapidly, without all the low-level issues?
