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.

It is mediocre on Linux, it render the fonts in a fugly way, the cinerama support is less than mediocre and the geometry bugs QGraphicWidget has is beyond tolerance.

And the worse, it is controlled by Nokia, hence semi-propietary, it is Nokia who desides what bugs are prioriry, what's gonna be the license of the next version and of course it desides when an API gets deprecated (see QGraphicsWidgets and KDE4), so an independent toolkit is a must, we are talking about a toolkit for Linux, being multiplatform means nothing, it means it will be mediocre in one platform or another.
