I think we should think more seriously about this platform idea, while
I picked Qt mainly because of recent (mobile) events, what really was
on my mind is java applications, Eclipse's SWT is more or less has the
same position as Qt, and I understood java UI toolkits from SUN
started to use GTK+ to render instead of emulating themes, actually I
do not see much different between those and GTK# --- those are just
another abstract layers that easiest my GNOME development
