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.

Anyway, my point is this ... why should authors of Qt applications be falling over themselves to re-write their apps just for the "honour" of being included on Mr Shuttleworth's Ubuntu default install CD?

I am shocked at aggression and anger directed toward Ubuntu in so many of the comments in this discussion. It seems a small but very vocal minority is interpreting Canonical's actions in the most negative light possible, and sharing their negativity with the rest of us.

FOSS development, just like practically any field in which people-to-people cooperation is essential, requires people be -- at minimum -- civil and respectful of each other.

Unfortunately much of the discussion in the last day or two has been anything but civil.
