-# About Shoes
-Shoes is the best little DSL for cross-platform GUI programming there is. It feels like real Ruby, rather than just another C++ library wrapper. If Gtk or wxWidgets is Rails, Shoes is Sinatra.
-# Let me tell you a story about Shoes
- Way way back in the day, there was a guy named \_why. He created a project known as [Hackety Hack]( to teach programming to everyone. In order to reach all corners of the earth, \_why decided to make Hackety Hack work on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. This was a lot of work, and so \_why decided to share his toolkit with the world. Thus, Shoes was born.
-Everybody loved Shoes. Many apps were made, and put into [The Shoebox]( But, one day, \_why left. In his memory, Team Shoes assembled, and carried on making Shoes. They released Shoes 3 in late summer 2010.
