Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu De kogel is door de kerk. After years of focussing entirely on Gtk+ and GNOME, Ubuntu will finally start evaluating Qt applications for inclusion in the defaukt Ubuntu installation. Mark Shuttleworth announced the policy change on his blog today.

You're reading this completely differently. He is advocating caution and already has some criticisms of how this is being presented:

"finally, the suggestion in Mark's blog entry in quite literal terms is to use dconf within KDE. that may be a good idea, it might not be. holding out a "you can be included in $TARGET_OS" trinket as a mechanism to sway such decisions is not a useful approach no matter the validity of the suggestion.
"

Why is that not a valid approach? What does KDE have to lose if Qt devs implement dconf suport?
