Comment on FileZilla

Wooh, U-G-L-Y!

If there ever was an argument against cross-platform GUI toolkits, here it is. WxWidgets really doesn't fit well with Aqua. Trolltech's Qt Toolkit would have been a bit better, albeit it also stinks of that win32 look 'n feel.

With that said, Filezilla has a mature codebase, and surely is welcomed competition, against the likes of Cyberduck and commercial alternatives. It's got a face even its mother couldn't love, but it works, and it's free/libre (GPL). Going from Windows-only to cross-platform is always a winning move for eveyone.
