Hey all, I was just thinking. Would it be really difficult to port gtk apps to qt?

In general yes it would be difficult. If it was trivial, the KDE people would have ported most of the good GTK apps already.

Depending on just how ubiquitous the use of GTK is within the app (e.g. Firefox barely uses it - it runs perfectly on Windows, for example, where it does not use GTK, whereas something like Pidgin probably uses something GTK-related on every line of code), the word "port" might need to be replaced with "rewrite from scratch" :)
