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.

What is it with {GNOME|Ubuntu|Shuttleworth} thinking that everything has to be done their way or nothing?

Nothing has to be done "their way or nothing"... The beauty of open source / free software is that if you like the idea you can use their software, and if you don't like it, you can use any of the alternatives that suits your preferences.

Canonical is just putting its money where its mouth is by sticking to a vision and implementing stuff based on it, rather than trying to draw conclusions from discussions at different forums that usually turn into endless (and often pointless) "religious wars". Whether the vision/idea is good will ultimately be decided by the users. (Unfortunately this doesn't prevent others from having endless and pointless religious wars related to Ubuntu.)
