The weblink section is a joke - a good article should contain not more than 5 or 6 weblinks. The rest should be linked as source where it makes sense, or just dropped. This is Wikipedia, not dmoz. --22.214.171.124 03:31, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
- mah.. for me the more links there are, the best is the page --126.96.36.199 22:46, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
- Wikipedia is not Digg/Del.icio.us/etc. Rstandefer 20:48, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
- This is a fair point. The wxWidgets site has a more comprehensive list of projects, and it would be sufficient to say something along the lines of "numerous projects make use of wxWidgets" and then to include an external link to the list. The links do not add anything to the article and are essentially irrelevant. Moggie2002 (talk) 13:05, 5 December 2007 (UTC)
- I agree with that, but I think the link would be better as an inline link rather than a reference. The reason being that a lot of people might not catch on that the reference points to a list, as opposed to a source which states that a lot of projects use wxWidgets. I have made the change accordingly. Felixac (talk) 18:26, 14 December 2007 (UTC)
The "See also" section
- Done. Replaced all the links with a link to list of toolkits. Ham Pastrami 22:05, 19 September 2007 (UTC)
"native mode" toolkit?
The use of the term "native mode" is misleading. Following the link for that very term, one sees that what "native mode" means can not be used to describe the difference between WxWidgets and GTK+ or Qt on Windows, for instance. Both of these two other run equally as native code with no emulation involved. What would be a more appropriate description would perhaps be that WxWidget on each platform uses the vendor-provided toolkit. TorLillqvist (talk) 00:07, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
The text doesn't describe the license correctly.
The license is LGPL 2 with extra wxWindows permissions. GPL and LGPL don't allow for modifications in the text, which is copyrighted, but they allow additional permissions, as long as these don't interfer with the GPL/LGPL licenses themselves. A branch does only need to follow LGPL or GPL at the brancher's option. Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 17:56, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
File:Bittorrent 7.2.1 screen.jpg Nominated for speedy Deletion
|An image used in this article, File:Bittorrent 7.2.1 screen.jpg, has been nominated for speedy deletion at Wikimedia Commons for the following reason: Copyright violations

See also section
The "see also" section is just a list of different GUI toolkits. But there already is a template which lists GUI toolkits at the page bottom. Should their listing in the "see also" section be removed? See: "and navigation boxes at the bottom of articles may substitute for many links" (here). Gryllida 02:40, 23 November 2011 (UTC)
What about virtual machines working well. This usually is a big problem for GUIs. A great info! It does not work well on virtualBox for example!!! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 18:03, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
