KDE The KDE Look and Feel Project is a GPL-licenced Swing pluggable look and feel which uses Qt and KDE for the drawing of widgets. KDE Look and Feel implements most of the Java Look and Feel API including dialogs (ColorChooser, FileChooser, etc.).

Maybe that's it. I just don't get it. How come the smart KDE people can come up with such a busy bumpy and noisy theme? I used to love KDE. But no more, as a tech-savvy person, I don't need 20 buttons with 5 configuration options plus tons of eye candies for a file browser. Maybe QT is technologically more advanced then GTK+. Who cares? If I don't use KDE apps at all, what good can it bring to me?

KDE's UI design philosophy is seriously flawed, esp. Keramik. It's no wonder that no major enterprise Linux distro uses KDE as the preferred desktop.
