Graphics, User Interfaces The desktop metaphor has served our computing needs well for the last decade. It has started however, to show its age over the last years. For office users it is still adequate but for everyone else it is often awkward and slow. Since a computer is no longer confined in the office, but in some cases serves also as the entertainment hub in our living rooms, new User Interfaces are required. In some areas the foundations are already in place while in others users are silently suffering every day, having to cope with inefficient and unproductive UIs.

Sounds very much like typical trolling on programming language A vs. programming language B.

ask *any* developer... if they know both frameworks, KDE and Gnome, including their libraries and prefered languages, they'll tell u GTK/C/Gnome can't match Qt/C++/KDE in terms of development speed and efficiency. now Mono might turn that around, sure, but it isn't there - yet...

Just compare Karbon14 and Inkscape and forget all the crap about GTK/C/Gnome vs. Qt/C++/KDE. Languages and widgets don't matter. People matter.
