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.

I think it's the right move. Personally i dont like the look and feel of kde applications, i thought that was qt's fault. now i have done some development and it's easy to make really nice qt applications. The development suit is one of my favourites.

What ubuntu lacks in my opinion is a great development suit to make Ubuntu applications with qt they will get just that. And by making a extension they will get nice integration with ubuntu, that is my main concern with qt/kde apps they dont blend in well with the rest of my desktop.

I hope that one of the goals is to be able to connect it with their app:store so ubuntu starts to draw development for paid app:s.

Dont get me wrong i do like the free as in beer applications for linux but i feel that being able to buy applications would be a step up.
