It looks like crap on every platform, the api is painful (even though
defenitly not the worst I have ever seen).
I would probably go with Gtk if it has to be C (or my own, -> OpenGL).
If you have e.g. python, I'd use wx and if I really need advanced
controls and a highly dynamic GUI, Qt.
Tk has none of the advantages each of the "3 Major" (gtk, wx, Qt),
additionally (as mentioned before), it looks like crap on every platform.
