Given two apps that do _exactly_ the same thing in KDE or GTK, I naturally 
choose KDE because it's more beautiful :-)

But not every app will always have a counterpart.  Everything starts as a 
thought in one person's mind, and that person probably has a preferred 
desktop environment.  It's a bit much to expect someone who hasn't the 
slightest interest in KDE to create a KDE interface for their app.

Or to answer the question a little less windily, "no, there currently aren't 
any better options". :-)
