A few years ago one of the architects at Adobe published some slides
on the software engineering aspects of PhotoShop, unfortunately I
couldn't find them on the web when I tried recently but I believe it
stated the codebase was well over 1 million lines of C++ and the GUI
(including Adobe's own frameworks) accounted for more than half of

GUI's often *are* the program rather than a way in to use it.
