The real benefit to Gnome/GTK and the reason I think they will win over 
KDE/QT (I actually like KDE better)
is that Gnome/GTK does not require a license fee to create a closed 
source application.

I also believe that is why Sun and HP both have pushed to make it their 
default desktop for their
Unixes. Basically they get the best of both worlds. They get a supported 
platform that they only need
to "tweak" to make it work for them, plus they can build a ton of closed 
source applications
without paying a license fee to anyone...
