    I wish they release a light version like MS Office with minimal functionality, using Qt.

        Light version and Qt is an oxymoron.

          Why exactly is it important which UI lib it uses?

            I wish they could beautify LO. Take a look at the difference between Pages and LO under headline "Filter" here https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/...es/5.0#Filters

              Yeah, right... that's why Adwaita looks so much better than breeze...NOT (did I mention it does no look like a motif app on every platform except linux?)
              They must be out of their mind to include something made by KDE and Qt developers...

              Honestly if your writing a cross-platform app and use GTK the user is gonna have a bad time...

              Because Qt is the way to go if you have a multi platform project and want it to look and feel native on each one of them.

                  Libreoffice is not a GTk application.... Libreoffice is written in vcl. Vcl has qt and gtk plugin to make the vcl integreate in qt and gtk evironment. Most people use the gtk plugin becouse it is much better. I remember a Trolltech guy somewhere said something about Qt is unsuitable to this sorts of things as they don't want to expose the needed internals in qt.

                    If what you want is something that feels native, that's what you should ask for, not a particular toolkit.

                    Even if we take it as given that Qt is the better way of doing things (and I mostly do FWIW) it's certainly possible for a Qt application to appear non-native, or a non-Qt app to appear native. So ask for what you want, not something that a user should never know about anyway - the underlying toolkit used shouldn't be something that matters one way or the other.
