Non-KDE/Qt educational/scientific software

I don't think:

  • many G* libs as part of core system

is a suitable answer to that at all. GTK+ itself is going to be forced on us by the Anaconda stack anyway for the foreseeable future. As for the other libraries, are there even any useful scientific or educational applications built on them? The only GTK+-based scientific apps I can think of right now do not require the usual G* libraries, but one specific library and the usual GTK+ 2 or 3 stack:

  • wxMaxima requires wxGTK, and through it GTK+ 2, no other G* stuff
  • gnome-chemistry-utils requires goffice (and libgsf that's part of the goffice stack), otherwise just the usual GTK+ 3 stack

Otherwise, the non-KDE/Qt scientific software I can think of does not use GTK+ at all, but, e.g.:

  • Tcl/Tk: many electronics apps, xmaxima, …
  • FLTK: xcas (not yet packaged in Fedora), …

So "G* libs" is the wrong answer for this topic.
