Want to start a fight in Linux desktop circles? Say, loudly and 
obnoxiously that Qt <http://qt.nokia.com/>, the programming libraries 
behind the KDE <http://www.kde.org/> desktop, are better than GTK+ 
<http://www.gtk.org>, the libraries backing GNOME 
<http://www.gnome.org>. Or, vice-versa. Either will work. Now, though, 
Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical <http://www.canonical.com>, 
Ubuntu <http://www.ubuntu.com>'s corporate big brother, is bringing Qt 
software to Ubuntu <http://www.markshuttleworth.com/archives/568>, long 
a GNOME stronghold.

So far I haven't heard any shouting from the programmers' corner, but 
give it a minute.

Shuttleworth made the announcement writing, "As part of our planning for 
Natty+1 [Ubuntu 11.10], we'll need to find some space on the CD for Qt 
libraries, and we will evaluate applications developed with Qt for 
inclusion on the CD and default install of Ubuntu."
