In what started as a series on KDE versus GNOME, columnist Nicholas Petreley has concluded the run with an article that details why he feels the future for KDE/Qt is so bright. He points out a few shortcomings in KDE (like the lack of tabbed browsing in Konqueror or underlining of typos in KWord -- both in CVS!) and says he feels confident that the KDE developers will fill those gaps. "Put simply, the KDE class libraries and examples are a brilliant testimony to reusable objects done right. Features such as the sophisticated file dialog and toolbar functions are obviously a part of the standard KDE class library, which is why most KDE applications now include them. If you upgrade the file dialog, all applications that use it get upgraded automatically." Basically, it's a essay for the layman explaining why a good foundation of coding tools is important for the final product.
