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.

Have you tried QtCurve?

I find it hilarious that GTK+ fans come along and talk about how nice their themes are compared to Qt themes. It seems that all they've seen is Keramic and Plastik. There are other themes and unlike GTK+ they are configurable via the GUI and often in surprising and useful ways. QtCurve has a ridiculously comprehensive theme configurator. You can make QtCurve-based themes that look surprisingly dissimilar from one another. It also supports GTK+ and will share settings so that your apps look the same (more or less) despite using different toolkits. It can even do things like button order-switching and icon substitution if that's your thing.
