@contrasutra: Zeke was talking about OpenOffice, not GNOME. Though, it is true that GNOME development is certainly more top-down than KDE development. From the GNOME perspective, that's actually a bit of a strength --- they have an easier time implementing things (such as the HIG) that would be very hard to do in KDE.

@Matt: Can you point out this article? Because the only toolkit entry I can find in Miguel's blog is in late March, and that is to make the claim that all application development has not been moved to Qt as had been rumored. Currently, the way it looks is that Novell will be retaining a KDE desktop, and integrating certain best-of-breed applications (eg: OpenOffice) into it.
