How about posting a screenshot of the "ugly GUI"?

Where did you get wxWidgets from? Especially make sure you're using wxGTK and not wxX11

I wonder if anyone has ever rejected a well coded app because the GUI look like ugly.

lmfao..So if I were to give you some amazingly fast program that does everything perfectly compared to the lower program, there is a chance you would deny that program because the GUI looked ugly?

Yep, I would.

If a programmer is not able to do a decent gui I suspect the rest of the program is as botched as the gui.
