I avoid Wine as much as I can, just like I avoid Qt apps on Gnome and vice versa. I want my desktop to be unified (both in looks and feel).


If you install gtk-chtheme under KDE4, it is trivial to get your GTK applications such as firefox almost indistinguishable from your KDE4 applications such as Kate.
