Parent article: Ubuntu and Qt, MeeGo and GTK+

If one goes back a few years it was common for a distro to ship GNOME and KDE, even on a CD. Of course I'm talking RedHat 6.x when everything was a heck of a lot smaller. It was the growing size of everything that forced a one cd install image to pick one or the other. Just squeezing in Qt isn't a big deal though, try making a cd with all of KDE and a base GNOME + OpenOffice.org + Firefox/Iceweasel. Good luck. Any DVD based install will give you both though.

As I mentioned on Priscus's comment below, it is not a matter of whether both desktops are available on the installation media, it's about whether both are installed in one combined desktop environment.

Didn't RedHat do a bunch of work related to that a while ago, setting things up so that KDE apps integrated nicely into the Gnome desktop L&F? "Bluecurve".

Skin deep integration, I think. Bluecurve was about theming. This is going much deeper...
