Mac OS X Now that the Mac App Store has been snuck installed onto your machine alongside Mac OS X 10.6.6, you might be wondering - is there some way to remove that monstrosity of an application from my Mac? While it's not officially supported, it does seem like Apple has taken this scenario into account.

Qt uses Cocoa as backend when running in the Mac. As far as I know, Skype uses Qt on the Mac and it is a very nice application.


Wrong!


A: The Skype UI is absolutely 100% pure native Cocoa, there is NO QT on Skype for Mac (source, have a friend who works there)

B: QT technically only uses Cocoa to create a raw empty window. After that, it does all of its own event handling, drawing, etc. QT uses Cocoa almost exactly like opening a raw X11 drawable. (source, looked at the QT source code)

Ok, I read that somewhere some time ago, but I could not assert that and I think your source is more valid than mine. ;)

They say that they use the HIThemes API provided by Cocoa to render their widgets instead of using their own renderers.
