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 don't complety agree, OSX has cocoa, Windows has MFC and .NET, Linux has ???, what it needs is a dedicated Linux/X.org toolkit, Qt tries to be "everywhere" and for that it gives mediocre results, so drop the multiplatform stuff, is not needed, work in something that works good in Linux and dedicated to Linux.

Cocoa is multi-platform (Cocoa touch).
.Net is multi-platform (WP7, Mono).
MFC is legacy and is not an universal framework.
Your point ?
