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.

VLC has to have the worst UI of any video app ever made. I would hardly hold it up as a shining example...

_maybe_ skype, although that is an example of an app that looks great on anything except for ubuntu.

I agree with most other people here for the same reasons -- qt apps dont look, feel, or act like gnome apps, and it would be pretty dumb to go down that road. Not to mention the overhead of loading two major gui toolkits into memory for one or two distro specific apps.
