You would be surprised, KDE made netbook desktop in about 6 months. That's why plasma exists in the first place to be easy and fast to do any type of desktop, mobile, netbook, etc.

I didn't say anything about that. Lemur2 wanted to make a GNOME-like desktop environment out of Qt and that's what I said would be a lot more work than a simple library for using dconf.

Sorry, from my point of view Lemur2 is saying: Please Qt is crossplatform don't try to make all QT apps less crossplatform lets try a solution were we all may win. The new kid (ubuntu) in Qt land pops in and says: "Now you all going to do it my way! Were there is valid solutions were everybody wins.

Gnome is not the subject here, we are talking about Unity and QT (Unity is a nail on Gnome coffin not QT), but I was saying that gnome look and feel are easy to implement on KDE because of plasma tecnology. In fact some parts of Gnome 3 are similar to netbook plasma desktop.
