The signals/slots mechanism is thread safe, and there is a mutex mechanism that is pretty easy to use. Also, Qt4 has STL support, so you can use standard containers and algorithms in an application (other toolkits will probably do this soon also; I know wxWidgets is moving in that direction). > From a > desktop perspective, things like application resizing and other > graphical aspects 'perform better' than GTK+ programs.

I've been trying to stay as far away from that topic as possible, in the hopes of avoiding a massive flamewar, but yes, KParts is one of the better OLE systems out there. However, KParts is not a Trolltech product, it is just related to it because the people who wrote KParts were using Qt. Nokia probably won't be buying the KDE project. -- Benjamin Kreuter
