I'm not sure if all is all that bad in the long run, if only maintenance of QWidget can be kept. From the arstechnica link:

FWIW, also former Gnome-lover Canonical is in the same boat since two years, once they voluntarily jumped onto the Qt boat (http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/3214):

That should mean something for the long run.

From that perspective alone, the QWidget class is deprecated, not KDE dying.
Youre apparently new on the forums Meet FunkSTAR, he's an anti-kde, anti-Qt troll that will refute any argument you give with the most vitriol and venom that he can muster at that moment in time. Recommendation? Ignore list
