Why GNOME?

Why do all non-gnome/kde apps go with gnome apps instead of KDE ones? The only one that used KDE AFAIK was SimpleKDE IIRC, and that didn't go too far.

because it's a lot harder to find pure qt apps than pure gtk apps, so many KDE apps are just that KDE, which means the hassle of ripping apart KDE and maintaining it, OR installing all the KDE libs, which puts you a couple megs away from just having KDE anyway.
