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.

Authors of QT applications would most likely continue using QSettings as they have always done.

It's about more than just creating a dconf settings backend. If you want proper application integration then all the applications have to pay attention to the settings they set and get from dconf. This is a mammoth task, will need to be some kind of Freedesktop specification and will require a lot of buy-in.

Not like such facts will matter for the irrational anti-Ubuntu and anti-Shuttleworth brigades.

Hmmmm. I love how any percieved criticism of Ubuntu and what Mark Shuttleworth says is somehow, by default, anti-Ubuntu and ant-Shuttleworth trolling. As if the opinions of Ubuntu and Mark Shuttleworth trump everyone elses', including those of the upstream who they expect to buy into this, and can't be questioned. Interesting.
