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.

They might as well, just create a GTK-compatibility layer so all existing GTK-apps work with QT.

There is no point to do this. Qt have a compatibility layer to run as gtkish as it can. Usign GLIB and GTK design guide lines. Ubuntu will(should) nerver switch design guide lines, invert ok and cancel and that kidn of stuff. Keeping Qt in GTK mode is the only hope to maintain some level of consistency.
