    Not long ago, they said that they had a secret plan B.... the general theory was that it would be dropping MS and going with Android. Unfortunately, their only way to remain RELEVANT is to have something that DISTINGUISHES them. If they switched to Android when Android was NEW, they could be bigger than Samsung right now. That, by itself, would be enough to distinguish them. Now their ONLY prayer is to offer something unique. Dropping the last bit of Qt is definitely the wrong approach.
    Haha.. You think too highly of them [Nokia]. If they can use their brain, these shit won't happen in the first place. I think, lately, they generate their decision with a half complete branch prediction program installed on pentium II machine

    I don't often do application development for Linux but when I do I much prefer Qt versus GTK. I can't imagine the community letting Qt die. It is easily one of the best frameworks for any platform, much less Linux specifically.
    Thank you for responding to that users comment.

    I don't think anyone is surprised by the actions of Nokia lately. It's on a path straight to the grave. Fortunately Qt already has the ability to outlive it's current owner.
