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.

No they are not deprecated. They are considered complete and mature by Nokia. And while it is true that Nokia is not going to take care of the maintenance, and/or of future development, if there is enough interest, developers can and will contribute. There is still a lot of interest by other companies (especially from the industrial world) to keep funding the development of the C++ widgets for years to come, and also from the KDE and open source side. Also, note that QWidgets and QML share a lot of things in common (like the graphic stack), and one of the main reason of Qt5 is to cleanly split QWidgets, QML and the common stuff.
