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.

I'm one of those fellows that refuse to install a Qt app on my GNOME desktop... for the same reason I don't like install a Java app. It behaves and looks differently than the rest of my apps.

I've tried KDE - but it's ugly in my opinion, and not as polished as GNOME.

That's my perspective as a user. However, as a developer I'd be absolutely thrilled if there was a GNOME-like DE developed in Qt - that would rock.
