Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This is kind of... Well, good news, I suppose? It depends on where you allegiances lie, but it seems like Ubuntu is warming up to the idea of using Qt to develop applications. It's no secret that Qt is a far more advanced development framework than Gtk+, so it only makes sense for Ubuntu - a GNOME/Gtk+ distribution - is looking at it.

Semantics are fun. KDE generally implies QT usage, but the reverse is not true at all. Plenty of open source and proprietary applications that use the QT toolkit have no relation at all to the KDE project.

Well said, and very true! The original article talks about Ubuntu+Qt, not Ubuntu+KDE.

To make it work you can't just have a desktop shell running Qt applications. That just isn't going to work.
