Qt As some had already anticipated when Nokia acquired Trolltech, the next version of the Maemo platform will have its application framework based on Qt instead of Gtk+. This news was announced at the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit. While the switch to Qt may seem a major defeat for the GNOME community, this isn't exactly true, as many of the underlying technologies will still be GNOME-centric.

Notably, VLC changed away from Gtk.

I don't think VLC ever had a Gtk interface. Before they moved to Qt they used wxWidgets.

Yes. But wxWidget used the wxGtk backend which relied on Gtk - atleast on Linux/BSD.

Umm...wxWidgets is a cross platform wrapper that backends into native widgets. GTK is just one target (that's totally abstracted out). It's absolutely not the same as using GTK.
