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.

Technical superiority to GTK

I've heard a lot -- including in this article -- about Qt's technical superiority to GTK, but searching online only seems to bring up entirely one-sided fanboy comparisons with little technical detail.

So, could anybody tell me briefly, what is it that makes Qt so much better? What can you do with Qt that you can't do with the combination of GObject, GIO, GTK, Cairo, Clutter, GStreamer, and so on?

This isn't a troll, I'm genuinely curious: I know quite a lot about programming the "G" world and next to nothing about the "Q" (or "K") worlds, and I'd like to expand my knowledge.
