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.

Why dont you just move on, we GNOME users like the new GTK YaST and it makes for a more consistent looking desktop plus no need to load all the kdelibs/icons/theme overhead. On the other side I see the KDE fans moaning about the same thing(why should we have to install GTK).

Face facts, it's so biased towards KDE here, thats why GTK YaST was never mentioned until someone intensionally brought it up 60 odd comments later. Now then it's knocked down by you like GTK YaST shouldn't be here.

You've seriously got to be kidding me...

- Who are you to tell anyone they don't like it? I believe that's up to those users now, not you.

- Who said it was anything other than the same YaST we've used under QT forever but now with a GTK interface? I didn't...

Give me a break... Stop trolling.
