Well, as a user I still like to have Unix paths in the dialog box if I
buy a Linux application (as I user I don't care whether it uses
internally wine/winelib or Gtk or Qt). I don't want to convert
"/home/user/a very long path/FOO/my.file" into
"z:\home\user\a very long\path\FOO\my.file" instead of simply pasting it
into the open-file dialog. (I actually would expect that "/FOO/" and
"/foo/" are distingushed and that a filename like "My\funny\file" works,
ok no one uses '\' for filenames, but having both "/PDF/" and "/pdf/"
happend actually to me. ;)
But this is from a pure user point of view.
who has a Corel Draw for Linux which doesn't want to run anymore.
