Graphics, User Interfaces As an answer to someone asking whether Unity will require a working OpenGL stack to operate in Ubuntu 11.04 "Natty Narwhal", Mark Shuttleworth announced that Canonical would offer an optional, QT-based, "2D" implementation of Unity. Here is a video, too.

So... Qt is heavy and slow right?

Qt ain't that heavy and is not that slow.

But people may take that perception becuase the main apps. that use Qt are heavy and slow, for example: they perceip KDE as heavy, bloatted and slow, hense they assume Qt is the same. But not really.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think KDE passes a wrong idea about Qt. It's such an elegant and well designed framework used in a such messy and bloated desktop environment.

ps: Sorry the trolling KDE fans, but I became very disappointed to what KDE turned these days, after so much promise on the beginning of kde4 project..
