Qt Nokia will introduce Qt to the maemo platform in addition to GTK+. The first actual step will be the distribution of the Qt libraries for application development in maemo.org during 4Q2008. Nokia wants to explore cross-platform possibilities between S60 and maemo. It is interesting also to check the interest in the developer community for Qt in the tablets. This is also a way to attract more attention from the KDE community, a sensible move especially if the Trolltech acquisition gets completed.

The point is that some end users agree with my opinion and some end users agree with your opinion........The OP was asking why he should not focus exclusively upon QT development.

Yer, and your meaningless and subjective bit of tosh had absolutely nothing to do with development. When it comes to user interfaces, do GTK development tools have something anywhere near Qt's layout manager? I'd say not. He's going to have to follow the Gnome HIG or something - by hand.

So, in a roundabout way you have answered his question:

As a developer, what is my incentive to learn GTK+ now? I was beginning to learn the API, but why would I if Qt will be officially supported?

No incentive whatsoever.
