Subsurface is an open source dive log program with a relatively small but active set of core contributors. It was created as a Gtk application and did reasonably well with a number of successful releases. Early 2013 the developers decided to change course and switch to Qt. This presentation will discuss why we did this (interestingly enough, a good bit of discussion after my presentation at LCA2013 was part of the motivation to migrate), what obstacles we encountered and what advise we have for other applications frustrated with Gtk (or curious about what a migration to Qt might have to offer).
