    Too bad (for you) that that is only true in some parallel universe dimension other than ours. In this universe mono is just a shity clone of an MS driven platform with shity apps that nobody likes.

    Unfortunately the converse is not true for Gtk+ applications running on KDE.
    There's been some progress recently. Oxygen has been semi-officially been ported to Gtk. Not a half-assed wannabe port. A *real* port:

    http://projects.kde.org/projects/pla...ork/oxygen-gtk

    I installed the Git version. It actually works and KDE Oxygen and Color settings are obeyed. Most Gtk+ apps look like Qt ones. Here's a screenshot of Gimp:

    Of course, the Gtk/Gnome devs couldn't be arsed to do this themselves... Shows how much they care :P

    What configuration do you need in a cd burning application, other than burn speed and buffer underrun protection?

    Sometimes, less is more.

    I like Mono apps. Oops, seems like I just demolished your 'argument'.

    But what happens when I change my Qt-theme to Cleanlooks, Plastique or anything else? GTK-apps start looking foreign again!

    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).

    Yeah, there are no technical advantages, so an only argument supporting mono is someone likes sluggishness. I suppose you're a hardcore turn based strategy gamer.

    Actually, I prefer RPGs.

    And of course there are significant technical advantages. For instance, the lack of out-of-bounds bugs that plague C/C++ libraries. Have you ever checked the security upgrades in your package manager?

    Nice to read.
    As a user of different programs I always have both the GTK and Qt stuff (plus sometimes other older toolkits) on my Gentoo. Takes time to compile though.
    But I also welcome that Canonical is opening up to Qt and especially installing a developer (giving back to the community, wasn't there an issue with Canonical?) and enhancing compatibility/visual comp. between these popular libs.

    No, not really. A couple of people complained that Canonical is not contributing to the Linux kernel as much as Red Hat but w/e. As far as I'm concerned, their work on accessibility, design/usability, compiz and qt is more important to the Linux community as a whole.

    The new gtk theme looks awesome indeed.

    That looks very promising. However the only thing which really annoys me when using GTK apps in KDE is the file dialog window. I think the KDE file dialog is way superior to the one in Gnome/GTK - but that's just my opinion. I guess this theme does not replace the file dialog window of GTK, does it?
