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.

RE[2]: Talk about arrogance

So let Shuttleworth do his thing to Ubuntu.

Sure. Go ahead. Whatever. Away you go, and write a set of interface binding for Qt apps to be able to query dconf. Fill your boots.

Just don't expect authors of Qt programs to re-write all their applications (to call those bindings) just to satisfy the Ubuntu desktop.

As this thread title says ... talk about arrogance! Sheesh.

PS: I have an alternative proposal for Ubuntu ... re-write dconf for Ubuntu to set not only the dconf database but also to make synchronous, sympathetic changes to Qsettings. Integrate Qt applications without requiring any re-write by authors of said qt applications.
