it only took some months

That's verifiable not correct, as it was part of Google's Summer of Code 2006(and it was started before that:-). Even if it has got 1:1 functionality coverage of YaST already, it took more than some months.

At this point it doesn't matter, it's done and over with. Now gnome people can enjoy a gtk interface. I don't even use gnome and I think it was the right decision.

It goes along with the total presentation you deliver. For example, Fedora and Ubuntu; both have excellent gnome distrobutions. The KDE versions of both are "ghetto wastelands" when compared to their gnome counterparts. They don't spend much time developing these DE's. To me it gives off the impresion that they don't really care much about KDE users. Which may or may not be true, but it leads me to not use there distro.

Also even with the applications to "convert" gtk apps to qt and the reverse, the menu structures are different(continuity), and icons don't change often to their new respective DE(look & feel), so it usually comes across half-baked to me.

They aren't enjoying anything. GTK YaST is an exact reproduction of Qt YaST, except with GTK used as the toolkit:

Basically, it has achieved nothing except create something pretty much identical................in another toolkit. I just find that rather pointless.
