No it does not affect Fastmail. I also use it and in fact even if you use an email client instead of webmail, they support full encryption without upgrading through STARTTLS.
I was in the same boat but I finally adopted VLC as my media player and it depends on the basic Qt libraries. It is so much faster to start and uses the least memory of any video player, for GTK+ or Qt. It really proves to me that Qt code can run just as fast as GTK code, even on a primarily GTK machine.
Also bear in mind that LXDE has not yet announced any plans to drop GTK support, but GTK3 team has been openly dismissive of anyone not developing for Gnome in specific, so it may be inevitable.
Indeed, I've seen a number of people who went with the olive or silver themes, and managed to make the rotating text say something other than "Microsoft Windows".

You have a dozen online IDEs to pick from, perhaps codeanywhere, cloud9ide or shiftedit would be good choices. Write your PHP, Perl, Python, etc, right there.

Download PuTTY and ssh in, find your favorite editor and install it to ~/.local or wherever you get to put your personal programs. Code to your hearts content and compile it - C, Haskell, Malbolge, whatever you like.
*Really* want to develop on Windows? Okay, go to vbox.me and download Virtualbox, install it portably. Bonus points if you put it in a truecrypt partition so dismounting it leaves no traces. Install Windows in a virtual machine and enjoy being administrator. Install your favorite IDE and program away.

Wow, the oldest man in the world, aged ~250, may I have your autograph?
of course its just for the lulz, its ALWAYS JUST FOR THE LULZ
Dont you get it?
Because when push comes to shove, it's easy to write, easy to make poorly thought-out patches and bugfixes to, and easy to set up and run.
The main criticisms I hear of PHP are that it's "too easy" and lends itself to spaghetti code and security flaws.
Being too easy means the market is saturated with PHP developers and it can be difficult, especially for HR, to decide who is actually a good programmer, and who is not.
never been anything wrong with openbox!
