Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Announced at the beginning of this year's Mobile World Congress
(MWC), the partnership between Microsoft and Nokia will see smart
phones from the Finnish manufacturer running the Windows Phone 7
operating system; but this has apparently left users of KDE, the
Unix and Linux desktop, feeling insecure. Reassurance has come in
the form of a blog entry by Cornelius Schumacher, President of the
KDE board of directors: he states that KDE development will
continue on the basis of the C++ framework, Qt.
"Users became concerned about the future of Qt because, with
Nokia moving over to Windows Phone 7, this would leave Qt only
being used for development for the Symbian platform."
