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.

Then they need to invest some resources into making QT communicate properly with the GNOME accessibility infrastructure. Otherwise, to use QT will directly contradict one of Ubuntu's stated goals, i.e. to provide an accessible desktop to all people. Not that I'd be surprised if they did go against this stated goal of theirs, they've certainly made decisions that sneared at it before such as using Webkit over Gecko in their core apps like Software Center.
