    Doesn't much matter anyways. Optical media is going the way of the floppies and zip drives. The trend for the last year or so has been to backup to external storage. You can even see this on the store shelves. It seems like the selection of optical media is getting smaller and smaller with every month that goes by. 2 years ago I used to burn DVD's like a madman but now it is cheaper and more reliable to use an external drive.

    This is not GTK+ apps rendering using Qt, but just another case of one Qt-theme and one GTK+-theme looking consistent with each other, similarly to the existing qtcurve (though admittedly looking a lot better than qtcurve).
    Do you know that QtCurve is a engine? You can use/create any theme with it.
    QtCurve is better than Oxygen because as being an engine, you can configure many aspects beside look (and the look it self of course), but in Oxygen you can not configure the look and only a small portion of the settings compared to the hundreds of settings in QtCurve.

    Look a look at this screenshot from kde-look.org, in my opinion, it looks much better than Oxygen.

    Oxygen is configured in System Settings. Oxygen-gtk uses the same settings as KDE's Oxygen.

    I used QtCurve in the past too. But now Oxygen-gtk. It's much better. QtCurve looked different from Oxygen and it also didn't do the "Window title to menu bar" smooth color thing correctly.

    The same with QtCurve, it is also configured via System Settings.

    One think I also like from QtCurve is that you can configured it to look like almost anything, including Oxygen.

    That's way I use it The problem which I see with Oxygen is that is has very few configuration options. With QtCurve you can use and create hundreds of themes, in Oxygen you have to use the same boring theme. For example, you can in QtCurve enable the "drag windows from titlebar, menubar, toolbar, etc." thing; or you can also hide all the menubars and statusbars with shortcuts or with a button in window decorator. In this screenshot you can see a small M on the left in the window decorator. It's for hiding the menubar of any window.

    It does work right now for me, you can see in the screenshot, it's only a setting of the used gradient.

    I mean it doesn't work for Gtk.

    I wasn't in a need for an Oxygen replacement. I was in a need for something that allows me to use Oxygen without Gtk apps looking random. We can argue all day long which Gtk theme is better. The point is solely having Gtk apps use Oxygen, which is what this theme solves.

    Ah, ok. But it also works

    Yes, it's an alternative to have a consistent theme for many apps, but personally I don't like some things from the Oxygen look, and they are not configurable.

    Btw, Oxygen supports dragging windows not only from titlebar, but from menu and toolbars as well as all other empty areas of windows.

    Just mentioning :P

    Yes, first it was implemented in Oxygen I think. My point was that QtCurve has all the options from Oxygen plus many more.

    Is this the "Window title to menu bar" you meant?

    Exactly, QtCurve does not render color gradients correctly. Additionally, it causes instability in some applications (e.g. MonoDevelop warns you when you start it up with QtCurve).
