Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Apart from well-known editions such as the normal Ubuntu and Kubuntu, the Ubuntu project includes several other variations as well. One of those is Ubuntu Mobile, which targets Mobile Internet Devices and netbooks. While this release currently uses GNOME Mobile, Canonical's David Mandala has stated that they may look at Qt 4.5, which will be released under the LGPL, as a development environment.

"You don't get it, do you?

Qt is one of the few development platforms that is realizing the promise of write once, run in a huge number of platforms. Phones and mobile devices are maturing and their hardware specs are now such that the amount of apps that can be ported and ease of development clearly outweigh some presumed performance gains."



well, the efl run on linux (xlib (with or without xrender extension), xcb (with or without xrender extension), opengl, directfb, fb backends), openbsd and freebsd, opensolaris, mac os x (quartz backend), windows xp (ddraw, d3d, opengl) and windows ce (gdi, ddraw, fb and gapi backends). And someone will work soon on a symbian port). So the number of platform and backend is not that low
