But isn't the same true if you want to use GIMP, or Firefox? I'm sure you
need certain GTK libs for those apps. (I'm one of those KDE users who runs
GC just fine)

Riiight.... complain about having to install some packages from another
desktop environment to be installed (which my distro installs for me when I
ask for gnucash/firefox/GIMP/Gnumeric - as any non-geeky system should), and
solve the problem with a complete alternative OS, just for Intuit to use.
BTW, you could have Microsoft and Gnucash. Yay!
All the Best,
