Why GTK?

Why is Intel going with GTK when every other non-iOS, non-Android, non-MS mobile OS is supporting Qt as a primary (or at least secondary) officially supported toolkit? Qt is even getting iOS and Android ports in Qt 5.1 and will only get better from that point forward.

Why don't they support Plasma Active which is all but ready for this market? Especially once KDE makes the jump to the KDE 5 ecosystem.

Intel makes great hardware, but they can't seem to get software right, ever. Their Linux drivers are okay I guess, but what else do they ever call correctly in the software department?
