Window Managers Gtk+ has GNOME on the one hand, and Xfce on the other. Qt, on the other hand, only has KDE - there's no lightweight, less encompassing alternative if KDE doesn't float your boat, but you'd still want a Qt desktop. Luckily for you, there's now Razor-qt, a small, lightweight and simple Qt desktop environment.

How is this inaccurate ?

http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2011/05/09/thoughts-about-qt-5/

A working OpenGL implementation will be required for Qt 5+ software to run. Knowing the fantastic performance of software OpenGL emulation and the new focus on shiny animations and touchscreen gestures, it is likely that a GPU with working drivers will be required for future Qt software to run properly. Fun times for Linux users with recent graphics hardware...

This article also explicitly states that QML + Javascript is the future, and that they expect you to only use C++ for application logic, or even not at all.

I am the first to hope that this madness will cease before it has gone too far, as I like Qt 4 as a framework and it saddens me to see it take that direction.
