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.

I am not an Ubuntu fan or anything, but even I have to jump in here: your comments sound like nothing more than trolling. They are perfectly within their rights to only include applications that work well on their desktop.

You can view it in whatever way that you want, but after seven years of steadfastly being hung-up on one toolkit, people complaining that perfectly good applications were being shoved to one side and coming up with some rather strange and very familiar reasons as to why they won't even acknowledge any other toolkits.......the irony is not lost on those of us who've seen what's happened over the past seven years.

After all, that's what EVERY single effing distro does.

No, outright excluding applications and alternative toolkits in installations based on ill-advised technology preferences is not what every distro does. Only some.
