    For me this means, bye bye VLC, I won't use QT-apps if there are GTK-alternatives.

    PS.this is not an anti-QT/KDE post, just my personal preference.

    not necessary. there is still going to be the wxgtk frontend. don't worry, even if you instal the qt4 version, it doesn't mean that you will have to install all those huge kde libs.

    only maybe for people using qt's variation of C++. not for other languages its not. the reason why they are moving from wx to qt is because the developers were having lots of problems with the wx toolkit.

    Give me a reason and I will respect your opinion.
    Qt isn't perfect, neither is Gtk, but anything is better than wxwidgets (gtk-1 on linux)

    i can't speak for viciouslime, but i can see where he's coming from. some viable reasons are:
    -qt apps looks awful in gnome
    -they often don't play nice with gnome
