xine is by far my favorite media app and has the best support for
playing dvds with menus.  It can use win32 codecs pretty well too.  It
doesn't use gtk2, but still has a very nice gui.  mplayer is also pretty
good, it can play dvds, but no real menu support that I've seen and
win32 codecs also work.  It has a gtk2 gui, but I think it's horrible.
I use just it's plain window interface and just use keyboard shortcuts
to control it.

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
