Summary

You now know about the various technologies that combine to provide portability to Gaim. You can use these same technologies in your own applications, and those applications will run on almost any computer imaginable. You understand what precautions to take when using these technologies and should be able to write truly portable code.

You can apply the knowledge you’ve learned throughout this book—such as networking and GUI coding, as well as the various development tools commonly used in open source software—to create your own networked, cross-platform desktop applications for instant messaging or for whatever you desire. Good luck, and happy hacking.
