Qt There is a group of consistency freaks out there (like myself) who are not very fond of mixing Gtk+ with Qt applications. The reasons for this are not just graphical, but also behavioural; Gtk+ applications behave differently than Qt applications (menus are different, layout is different, etc.). Trolltech obviously can't tackle the behavioural side of this issue, but they can tackle the graphical one. This is exactly where QGtkStyle comes into play.

A little warning: QGtkStyle only works with QT4 apps.

Which part of "The style is available as a plugin to Qt 4.4 (...)" is not clear?

I'm sure that someone will think that QGtkStyle could make their common QT3/KDE3 apps looks like GTK ones on GNOME, as if the plugin after enabled on QT4 could apply the style on all QT apps regardless of version.

Specially since QT3 is quite prevalent, thus think about some sort of backward compatibility is rather natural under such conditions.
