An anonymous reader writes "According to Shuttleworth, the reasoning behind the inclusion of QT libraries in Ubuntu stems from their perceived "ease of use and integration advantages." I'll take his word for it until I can find glaring data to support a decent counter-argument, since I'm not a programmer myself.
But one thing I don't see being discussed is whether or not this is breaking a system that already works. Ubuntu was made successful with brown themes, the GNOME desktop and yes, lots of GTK applications. Do we really want QT being tossed into the mix?"Link to Original Source
