I think this is strongly dependant on some parameters. I did some
interactive plotting on both a pentium 2, linux, WxAgg (thus Gtk behind
Wx), and a pentium 4, windows, WxAgg (thus MFC behin Wx), and there was a
huge difference between the speeds. The speed difference was a few orders
of magnitudes. I couldn't explain it but it was a good surprise, as the
application was developped for the windows box.
