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.

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.


I have seen Qt5 run on top of Mesa software rendering, and the performance is great.
