Lubuntu 14.10 and after

KDE uses QT, but it's not QT. UbuntuOne, or many other apps, used QT and
nobody noticed it. We're not forced, really. Other environments will remain
in GTK. But not LXDE. Have in mind that QT is faster than GTK, modern and
it's Desktop independent, unlike GTK, that depends heavily on GNOME.

Trust me, you will continue using your desktop and, thanks to the Artwork
Team, you will feel as comfortable on it like with current GTK one. Don't
expect big aesthetic changes, or big core changes. And we are not going to
replace everything in a moment. And I'd like to say you that everything we
make is for good of this Operating System, so we'd never considered this if
if wasn't useful.
