Submission + - Blurring Linux Development? (earthweb.com)

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?
