Very briefly commenting about the quoted software here: they both use 
the Qt toolkit and thus would bring in a lot of unwanted dependencies. 
This would not only mean they would be likely slower to run on lower end 
machines, they would also likely appear less integrated with the system 
than their GTK counterparts.
