Which graphical library for a multi-platform application?

Hello,
Please excuse me if I am a little off-topic. I would like to know what
graphical library is the best to use for a multiplatform (Windows, Mac Os,
Linux) application. I know GTK, but it is pretty difficult to install for
unexperienced users, and I think it can't be statically linked.
Thanks a lot for your advices,
Nicolas

There is Qt. The open source version is free (obviously) but your
software must be under some sort of open source license. The commercial
version is a bit pricey...But it is multi-platform and includes many
things multi-platform apps need, e.g threads, sockets, etc. And the Qt
Designer is pretty good as well.

There is also something around called DEPUI. Free, and reputed to
work with C. WxWindows is, I understand, limited to C++ and thus
useless here.

I saw alot of people (elsewhere) mentioning SDL a while ago.

Yes, SDL is great for its 2D graphics, sound, opengl
interoperatability, etc. It's often considered as a good game
development library. But if you mean GUI(since you mention GTK), I'm
afraid SDL isn't the way to go.

Quoting isn't always necessary.
The topic was self-explanatory.
