Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This is kind of... Well, good news, I suppose? It depends on where you allegiances lie, but it seems like Ubuntu is warming up to the idea of using Qt to develop applications. It's no secret that Qt is a far more advanced development framework than Gtk+, so it only makes sense for Ubuntu - a GNOME/Gtk+ distribution - is looking at it.

"Qt has a lot to offer Ubuntu..." Funny, you wouldn't know it from the sad state of Kubuntu presently.


Clearly a person who hasn't tried Kubuntu on 10.04 or 10.10. Its fine except for Kwin within KDE 4.5 with the ATI open source drivers just now, but that is a problem for any KDE 4.5 installation not just Kubuntu, and the only effect is to disable compositing. One can use compiz for KDE as a work-around.

In every other facet, Kubuntu 10.04 or 10.10 gives you a great desktop with a fine set of well-integrated KDE SC applications, and it is completely free of Mono as a bonus.
