Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Any discussion about GNOME vs. KDE is sure to end in tears. It's basically impossible to discuss which of these two Free desktop environments is better than the other, mostly because they cater to different types of people, with different needs and expectatotions. As such, Bruce Byfield decided to look at the two platforms from a different perspective: if we consider their developmental processes, which of the two is most likely to be more successful in the coming years?

Most applications which are not made for a specific desktop are GTK apps, why I get the impression that there's hardly any QT but non-KDE apps around. I'm actually quite interested in the technology behind QT and I believe it is currently a lot better than GTK but there's just no apps if I don't want to use KDE.


At least two that I can think of:

Now that Qt4.5 is out, licensed under the LGPL, I would imagine there will be a lot more like these.
