My 2 cents... without any support material.

1. The biggest motivation would be library support going forward if the
gtk2 libraries get deprecated.

2. I am not sure if there are any performance improvement in
execution. My gut feeling is that it will not matter much.

3. Considering that the GTK1 libraries were being delivered for a long
time after the GTK2 ones were available in Linux distros, I would expect
a long phasing time for these as well.


I'm still running Fedora 11 in my main work system. When the system is
working just right. no need to tinker with it. :)
