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.

Ubuntu is not targeting KDE apps, not at the moment at least. What they want to do instead, is to make Qt applications feel native on the Ubuntu desktop.

KDE applications are the biggest open source Qt using applications around. If he's not at least thinking about them then one can only imagine he's going to get Canonical to write a lot of Qt applications, from somewhere.

Qt is a extremely developer friendly toolkit, yet lacking in areas related to user experience.

Is it? Wow.
