PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "A few months ago, the GNOME Mobile Platform was announced to the public. One of the main forces behind the launch of this initiative was Nokia, which uses a lot of GNOME-components in its Linux-based Internet Tablets Nokia 770 and N800. During this years GUADEC Andreas Proschofsky had the chance to sit down with Carlos Guerreiro, Nokias Manager for Open Source Software, to talk - amidst other things - about the not so different needs of personal computers and mobile devices, about the necessity for GTK+ 3.0 and the impact of the iPhone launch."

It only adds to the frustration of developers using the platform.


How can this particular ABI breakage cause frustration for the average ISV dev on the gnu c++ platform? If a developer is only targeting 32-bit x86 (which until 64 bit linux becomes far more widespread, this is going to be the vast majority of ISV's) this particular ABI change will have ZERO impact, and the ABI is exactly the same as it was in gcc 4.0 and 3.4.
