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.

That's KDE fans wet dream, but I don't think it will happen, just saying.

It's already happening. Ubuntu at one time would never have went anywhere near Qt, and yet, here they are replicating their entire interface in it......for 2D.

They will either end up having to build a whole desktop in Qt or reusing what's already on offer (KDE), but they'll be dragged kicking and screaming into doing it and Canonical might well have gone bust by then.
