Qt There is a group of consistency freaks out there (like myself) who are not very fond of mixing Gtk+ with Qt applications. The reasons for this are not just graphical, but also behavioural; Gtk+ applications behave differently than Qt applications (menus are different, layout is different, etc.). Trolltech obviously can't tackle the behavioural side of this issue, but they can tackle the graphical one. This is exactly where QGtkStyle comes into play.

I don't really care if qt and gtk+ apps look and feel the same as each other. What I care about is if they look and feel the same under different window managers.

This isn't a problem for Qt. All of my Qt apps look the same under both KDE and XFce. The problem is that GTK+ apps like Firefox, pidgin, inkscape etc, all look like crap under KDE.

I'm not too knowledgeable about the different WMs and Toolkits to point a finger of blame. All I can say is that is the main reason that I will keep using XFce...because both GTK and QT apps while looking different from each other, at least look good. GTK+ apps under KDE take all the beauty away from KDE4.
