That it not only supports gtk, but the others as well (natively).

That's right, but wxWin does native win/mac/gtk api... and
you still have the choice of developing for the gtk version,
and then using the x-platform capabilities of gtk... but you
can also choose to use the native os api.
I also know that wxWindows abstract a lot of things besides
the gui, like threads, sockets and stuff. Does gtk have this as well?

Well, neither do I, but they chose to support it... ;)

I was not really asking, just for some thoughts on the
subject. What I am curious about, is how do the capabilities
of wxwindows and gtk+ compare to each other. What are the
strong points of one versus the other (aside from the
os-native lookandfeel versus gtk-lookandfeel, which is a
matter of taste (and I like native lookandfeel better))?
How do applications developed with gtk+ for a windows
platform handle drag-and-drop from/to other programs? Are
there installtion issues (with wxwin you don't need a
complete set of common controls, just a lib with the
wrappers, with gtk+, you must install the win-version of the
gtk on the machine as well)
One of the questions that could be useful: Is there room for
two such projects, php-gtk and wxphp?
