The applications need to switch as well

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 18, 2007 05:56 PM
Unfortunately a lot of applications are already using GTK even KDE uses some of the gnome libraries for their XML support.

If QT drops their theming and just relegates it to GTK or someone creates a GTK fork that forwards all their rendering and UI stuff to QT that would be the best way of getting around it.

Notice I didn't say QT should fork, because I think if they did have time they would probably do it. Heck they already started moving to SVG to do their rendering and they are already using some Gnome libraries. However, I doubt the Gnome teams would make the same move though.
