Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu De kogel is door de kerk. After years of focussing entirely on Gtk+ and GNOME, Ubuntu will finally start evaluating Qt applications for inclusion in the defaukt Ubuntu installation. Mark Shuttleworth announced the policy change on his blog today.

He wants Ubuntu to be fully accessible to everybody, so he said. If that's still true, I hope he's going to put some resources into making QT apps work with the various accessibility aids in Ubuntu. Otherwise, that makes Shuttleman a straight up liar.


Dammit, does nobody ever read the actual article before they start bashing Shuttleworth? Your answer is right in his blog post:

"In evaluating an app for the Ubuntu default install, we should ask:"..."is it accessible to people who cannot use a mouse, or keyboard?"

People, we are talking about the Ubuntu default install. He makes a difference between QT and KDE. He also even states that there is nothing preventing someone from installing a QT app on Ubuntu.

They just want to ensure that the best software in class is part of the default install and that it acts and looks like all of the other applications that are included by default.
