I just knew I read somewhere that KDE went with QT and Gnome went with
something else. I sure as heck don't know a whole lot and I'm not sure I
understand half what I know. *<[:oD I remember that in the first post of
this "Second Try" QT was mentioned so my poor feeble brain associated
that with KDE. I tried both when I first started experimenting with
Linux and stuck with KDE. I really haven't used anything else except for
a few short forays into CLI.

KDE builds on Qt. KDE is Qt plus a bunch o'stuff, but you can still write
standalone Qt applications.
GNOME builds on GTK. GNOME is GTK plus a bunch o'stuff, but you can still
write standalone GTK applications.

When YaST2 was designed, SUSE favoured KDE, so standalone Qt was the choice
for a GUI-independent GUI frontend to YaST2. On the KDE side we show the
YaST2 modules in the (freedesktop.org) standard menu structure, and used to
show them in Control Centre as well. Personally, I hope we will be able to
get them back in KDE4's System Settings.
