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.

That's a theme engine.

Yer, and? It's certainly a big help to desktop and application integration - and guess who wrote it? We'll just paint over that though.......

Read the article again. This is about the settings backend. A theme engine ain't gonna help you there.

This is about integrating applications, not purely about some settings backend. A settings backend by itself certainly won't help you because you've got to agree a format with everyone as to what settings will be stored and how they will be used, and everyone has to buy into it for it to work. The article goes into no detail whatsoever there.

Stop telling people to read the article again when you don't understand the implications within it yourself and Mark Shuttleworth doesn't either.
