Add me to the list of people unaware of Qt.

It has a natural cause: Qt was first developed as a framework for Nokias' old Symbian system and just became in the past few releases a good framework for other (Desktop) environments. It has a steep learning curve at the start, but after you get familiar with the Qt Gui designer and IDE and learnt the basic of their Signals and Slots mechanism you basically can start developing your first simple app (took me about 8 working days - if you have any questions while exploring Qt feel free to leave a comment under any of my forum messages or below this forum message).

Time to look into it.

It is. Qt became somehow a platform independent .Net framework for Linux, Windows and Mac. The time you take for looking into is worth it because you'll learn a way of how you can develop an app which works platform-independent and without Java.
