The Myth Of Linux Community Support. 938
leaving aside what gstreamer is meant to do, it's in version 0.8.9.0 or thereabouts while QT is in version 7.x. QT has been available for many years on Mac and Windows systems. gstreamer isn't quite ready for Consumer Debt use yet ,or so this bit from the FAQ suggests:

But the people who maintain the FAQ for it seem to believe that applications aren't really ready for commercial use using it. Not that simplified and I never...
Q: What applications are available for GStreamer ? A: GStreamer is still very early in its development, but already we see some really nice applications being developed in parallel with GStreamer. Both gst-player and gst-editor are very closely linked to GStreamer itself for obvious reasons.
As far as I know, no it doesn't. MacOS X has all the scripting languages of Linux PLUS AppleScript, which is a human-language-oriented language designed for end-users, with a sufficiently human-like syntax that spoken AppleScript scripts could probably be understood and followed by endusers directly. An important feature of AppleScript is that the syntax is designed to be task-specific instead of application specific. This allows different applications designed to do the same task (e.g. various word-processors) to make use of the same AppleScript script to perform the same task without translation. Applications are free to extend the AppleScript specification past the core dictionary for each kind of task, of course.
