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.

The problem is...that GTK+ fanboys will still refuse to use QT applications...

Most GTK "fanboys" won't know the difference once the app renders using a GTK theme. They only know when it looks "different". You can bet that if Skype, Opera, GoogleEarth, VirtualBox etc. render in clearlooks or whatever theme they're using, rather than the plain-jane default Qt theme, they'll proclaim them as Gnome apps.

It's the hardcore purists that will continue to object, no differently than their counterparts that complain about GTK versus Qt. And nothing will every change that.

Just my 2c...
