I am the author of QDevelop. QDevelop is for Qt as KDevelop is for Kde. The name
Kdevelop is the first letter of KDE + develop as QDevelop. What is the problem,
you are offended to see a similar name? It is the code which makes the quality
of a program, not its name. QDevelop is not a Qt only version of Kdevelop. It's
a independent IDE dedicaced to Qt but is totally independent of KDevelop. Less
complete, but faster, lighter and especially multi-platforms
