As for the decision itself, I'm OK with it. Anything that makes my Ubuntu desktop work a little better is a step forward. Peace.


That's nice. After utterly ignoring Qt and KDE for many a year, suddenly, just for the sake of the Ubuntu default desktop, all authors of Qt applications must re-write parts of their application in order to be aware of qt-dconf settings, unique to Ubuntu?

I'm so glad you are OK with that. </sarcasm>
