Thumbs up to QT

I am going to give a big thumbs up to QT.  For those not familiar with it, QT is a development framework for C++ that can compile binaries for multiple platforms, including Windows, Linux, and the Nokia smartphone platforms.  As a Gnome lover, I never gave QT much attention.  I fiddled with Python on Linux, but I have not really been in the business of making desktop apps lately, and QT is very strongly tied to the KDE desktop and not to Gnome.  (I actually like KDE as well, it being the first Linux desktop I ever used, but lately I have been using gnome).
