So am I the only one who thinks having a dependency on the QT monster AND freaking QT JavaScript is a good idea for a Gnome/GTK desktop?


Perhaps Ubuntu won't be a "Gnome/GTK desktop" forever? Just saying.

It is a good idea if it helps Ubuntu make a compelling experience with less work. People who object to it are free to run other stuff. Or get a job and buy a computer with more than 256megs of ram.
