Gnome Only a few days ago, we ran an article on the future of KDE and GNOME, and which of the two had the brighter future based on their developmental processes. Barely has that discussion ended, or the GNOME engineering team comes with a pretty daunting plan to introduce a fairly massive reworking of the GNOME interface for GNOME 3.0 (2.30). Read on for the details.

Lame is name calling -- like calling people with a respectable track record like Jos "fanboys". That's not an argument, that's just lame.

In one respect, you are right of course: it's still GTK against Qt -- but that's all there's to it. If it's not gtk/glib based, it won't need to apply.

Technical arguments are moot as long as libraries like akonadi, which was developed to be as cross-platform as anyone could wish, but using Qt, are barred from freedesktop.org.

But that doesn't mean it wouldn't be the right, technically right, design to implement new parts of Gnome using Qt, if there are already good, portable libraries that almost all the heavy lifting.
