"Trolltech has announced the release of the beta version of
Qt/Embedded, a GUI application framework directly targeted at
embedded systems. It is based on Trolltech's well known Qt
technology offers developers of embedded applications the same
power, flexibility, and cross-platform portability as the popular
desktop versions, Qt/Windows and Qt/X11...."
"The current version of Qt/Embedded supports any Linux with a
linearly addressable framebuffer device running in 8-bit, 16-bit,
or 32-bit pixel modes, with a proven architecture for adding
support for other modes and hardware acceleration. It does not
require the X Window System, which traditionally has provided the
low-level GUI functionality on Linux systems. This means that a
Qt/Embedded based system will have substantially lower memory
requirements. Qt/Embedded in its current minimal configuration
requires only 770Kb of ROM (x86). This number is expected to be
further reduced in the production version."
"Qt/Embedded has already generated large sales interest.
Leading companies from a wide range of industries have been
attracted to the new product which will significantly reduce
time-to-market and increase hardware utilization. In addition,
the low memory requirements can reduce the per-device hardware
