comment Qt's future in the light of Nokia-Microsoft partnership
you're actually right..Canonical might not have the motivation to invest into the Windows and Mac platforms, especially since i don't believe they would keep the commercial support license if they were to buy Qt. A potential Qt buyer must have a special motivation(be it financial or personal interest) for keeping the wide cross-platform orientation that Qt currently thrives to, esp. the mobile side, which i think is doomed at this point.

I do appreciate your points, but let's not spin this off. There's another issue here that we are supposed to approach and tackle.

Canonical could give Qt and Maemo/Meego a new warm home, especially in this context.

@Nemanja Trifunovic, not quit true, i like C++ too, if i disliked it wouldn't have been using it anyway, no matter the framework and i think that's the case for everyone. A good framework/library will only empower the language and not the opposite. That's why i wouldn't give Qt development over MFC for eg. in a trillion years. I also don't buy into the fact that you liking C++ makes you dislike Qt..? :-)
