If VMware would have been using the KDE Desktop then there would only be a common way doing this since you deal with full supported Toolbar objects than can't malfunction.

And they would have to expend thousans fo dollars in licenses, they made the right desition, VMWare is a hit a a great application, you are only frustrated because they choosed GTK/GNOME instead Qt/KDE, they made the right desition Cudos to VMWare developers.

Uhm, your explaination is quite stupid. The question would be how many dollars are VMWare getting with each sold VMWare key ? Probably much more than the license they had to pay for using QT. Or are you telling us, you use a pirate version of VMWare ? Dare you, you make people like ChipX86 become unemployed maybe.

VMware GSX Server 3 (for Windows operating systems and Linux systems)

Electronic Software Distribution
2 Processors US $1694.00 * BUY
Unlimited Processors US $3388.00 * BUY

I can't consider this to be "cheap" even the workstation versions ain't cheap. So how does these prices compare to what they had to pay Trolltech for using QT ? 20 developer licenses would mean, selling 10 GSX Servers with unlimited processors.

Now imagine how much would VMWare cost if you add the license of Qt cost? maybe triple. GTK is the right way to go, Qt/KDE is only destinated to fail, is to damn expensive, GTK will succes in other projects, you can be sure.

Why would they throw money away just to please some trolls? grow up, If GTK can get the work done and save lots of money in the process then GTK will be the answer not only for VMWare but for many others too.

I think VMWare is a great application and looks great on my GNOME desktop.
