Graphics, User Interfaces As an answer to someone asking whether Unity will require a working OpenGL stack to operate in Ubuntu 11.04 "Natty Narwhal", Mark Shuttleworth announced that Canonical would offer an optional, QT-based, "2D" implementation of Unity. Here is a video, too.

IMHO this is a useless increase in memory usage..

It's got nothing to do with memory usage. What's worse is divided and wasted effort.

Apparently choosing a GUI library and *sticking to it* is really difficult: SUSE went from KDE to Gnome (and then back on some versions), Nokia switched from GTK to Qt, Canonical use both at the same time apparently, *sigh*.

Because some people with issues didn't want to accept that Qt, and then probably KDE, was the right technical direction they should have been going in in the first place.
