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.

Cocoa works on Apple platforms, .NET on MS platforms, news at eleven.


Qt applications work for desktop environments (Windows, Linux, and Mac OS) and mobile devices (Symbian, Maemo, and MeeGo).

Develop your app for a much wider market with no extra effort.

And that's why it is mediocre on Linux.

Linux needs a dedicated toolkit not one that want's to be "everywhere".

That really has no logic. Qt apps are compiled for the target operating system.
