Man how I wanted an elegant desktop environment written in Qt. It's kind of sad liking Gnome but hating Gtk, and loving Qt and hating KDE mentality of "complex is good" or "if doesn't have 451 buttons it isn't good"

Darn. Couldn't have said it much better myself; I love how smooth the animations are in KDE and how much more advanced Qt feels compared to GTK+, but I just really hate how every KDE app includes a gazillion menu entries, buttons, layouts, heck, they seem to be stuffing the whole kitchen sink in there, too.

Oh well, this isn't a KDE thread though. Good thing to see Qt getting improvements, might be worth learning to use it myself too someday.

Nope, it's not. To copycat you, I could just as well state: "on a related note, i just really hate how no one ever has enough stuff with them all time time, i really need first aid kit, full toolbox, kitchen sink, vacuum cleaner, 12 different screwdrivers, canister of gasoline and a toolshed with me every time i do something as simple as drink coffee"

Exaggerating things is fun, isn't it? Oh, and it _clearly_ makes my post look mature and well-presented, doesn't it?

Oh yes, that's obviously what he is saying. What a remarkable non sequiter. What are you, twelve?

I think people on open source community should starting studying design.
