Gnome GNOME hacker Seth Nickell has written a lengthy PDF and accompanying blog post with a number of very interesting ideas for GNOME 3.0. I pondered putting this up on the front page, but since that usually only attracts the "It's not what I'm used to so it sucks"-crowd, I decided to put it up here. Be sure to read the blog post, the PDF, and the comments on the blog post to get the entire picture.

I'm quite aware of desktop Linux and how GTK apps look like ass in KDE.

If the major distros switched to KDE then those GTK apps would be re-written or eventually phased out.

I'm also aware that Qt is leagues ahead of GTK, especially when it comes to cross-platform development. That gap will continue to expand as Qt is better financed.

There are more GTK apps but Qt has advantages that will favor it in the long term. We'll see more open source projects that primarily target Windows + OSX with Qt and integrate with KDE as a bonus. Qt will gain further support as GTK stagnates.
