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.

Qt Quick is by far the most advanced and easy way to create rich and well designed apps on Linux. That alone is a big reason to use it on Ubuntu development.

> "easy way"

Talking about this, compare the simplest program, “hello world”:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gtk#GTK.2B_hello_world
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qt_%28framework%29#Qt_hello_wo...

The difference is big. Fundamental.

you do realize that you're looking abysmally stupid by comparing an ad hoc markup-meets-logic language with a C implementation, right?

no, I mean: you do, right?

I agree, but it does seem to be limited to fixed size applications (i.e. for mobile phones, tablets, TV interfaces etc). It would be cool if you could make normal desktop apps with it.
