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.

I would add a few:

Cleanly designed

Visual Studio tie-in

Bindings support

Better team leaders and funding

They still have some native control and font issues to work out in Win7 and OSX but once those are baked out you will see some ISVs switch over.

How much it is embraced in Linuxland doesn't even matter. There is nothing else on the horizon when it comes to cross-platform development.
