    Phoronix: Ubuntu SDK To Look At Ports To Windows, OS X

    Ubuntu developers are looking at how to bring the Ubuntu SDK for application development to Windows and OS X operating systems...

    I usually don't troll but...

    Qt already works in all platforms. Why would anyone wrap the Qt SDK in a layer of cheat?!
    Are they trying to fork Qt? They've already patched it to run their crappy display server, how much crap have they added to Qt so it doesn't compile to windows and mac?

    Every single piece of cheat they create only runs on Ubuntu and they all run like cheat. Unity, Mir, Ubuntu One, Software Center, Compiz/unity, Launchpad...

    BTW, I've just discovered I can't install Ubuntu One in other distros. And that crap runs like cheat on Android and Windows.

        There a many "easy" ways to create non-portable apps with Qt. It's not all in the toolkit.

        A trivial example is to create files/folders where casing matters: two files, one named 'Config' and the other 'config'.

          I hope Ubuntu will eventually die. It's a cancer for Linux, a trojan horse.

            I think you are misusing that word.

            No.

            You obviously do not know what you are talking about.

            Let me excuse the misuse of "cheat" for a bit. You are a liar.

              Thanks. Yes, I meant a layer of shit, crap, poo, fecal matter, stool or feces.

              I'm not lying. Here is Qt SDK avaiable for Linux, Mac, Win http://qt-project.org/downloads.
              And when they bundled Qt SDK with their shit, it's Ubuntu only. Here is a slogan:
              "Qt with Shit™, only on Ubuntu."

                I don't understand. They talk about porting, but then the idea is just do what anyone would do when their platform they want to code for is not supported by the SDKs that run on their preferred system: run the system on a VM. What's the point on 'porting' if you end up doing that? Or is 'VM' used as in JIT compilers and such?

                On another subject, this
                potentially just not for ruinning apps but also for the development environment.
                Made me smile.

                  They simply made the Ubuntu plugins for Linux. Now that they are confident that it works, they can port it to Mac and Windows.

                  That is the very same method that Sailfish took. Their SDK was initially only available for Linux, then they made it available to Windows and Mac. Why weren't you raving and ranting about Sailfish then?

                    Is there anything that can kill more brain cells than reading Phoronix forum comments for Ubuntu news? I can't think of anything right now.

                    You know who's really shitty? 1337 hax0rs.
                    You know what could die? Your hatred.
                    You know what's Linux's cancer? Distro wars.
