Canonical and Shuttleworth add Qt to Ubuntu Linux

Want to start a fight in Linux desktop circles? Say, loudly and 
obnoxiously that Qt <>, the programming libraries 
behind the KDE <> desktop, are better than GTK+ 
<>, the libraries backing GNOME 
<>. Or, vice-versa. Either will work. Now, though, 
Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical <>, 
Ubuntu <>'s corporate big brother, is bringing Qt 
software to Ubuntu <>, 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."

"To know that we know what we know, and that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge."
