    But Firefox tends to use some GNOME stuff like gvfs.

    And LibreOffice, like StarOffice is based on VCL, their internal toolkit. There is a Qt version of that too.[/QUOTE]

    What you mean with there's a QT version too? I don't see why don't replace VCL with Qt wich would remove the wrapper for every plattform.

      a) A lot of work
      b) Qt doesn't look native on win32 or mac, vcl does

          ?

          I see it tries to, but it's pretty clearly not using the native widgets.

            KDE integration of LibreOffice 4.0 is still extremely crappy if anybody cares.
            Users of LibreOffice under a KDE Workspace are better off using LibreOffice’s GNOME integration with the GTK port of the Oxygen theme.

              On one hand that is clearly Windows XP (which is ancient) and on the other hand QtCreator uses a bunch of custom widgets that look non-native everywhere.

                FreeOffice by SoftMaker

                Tested LibreOffice in its latest version. Despite some improvements I still prefer FreeOffice because of its much better compatibility to Microsoft Office formats (which most of my friends and colleagues use), its better UI, reliability, and speed. It's not as good as the commercial version SoftMaker Office, but the best free office suite.

                  A very interesting point!
