I see alot of valid points, however I see a few roblems remaining.
Although some people directly port their programs many for various
reasons maintain different codebases on Linux, one good example is
RealPlayer, which also happens to use GTK. It is an example of what I
mean, a progam I would like to use Qt but doesn't and isn't lkely to.
For new developers of commercial software having a free Qt would be
another incentive to use it.
As for C/C++ diferences, both toolkits have bindings for multiple languages.
As for the many toolkits, yes there are, the man office UI (toolars)
aren't standard windows however all the options dialogs and popups do
use Microsofts standard widgets.
