Qt As some had already anticipated when Nokia acquired Trolltech, the next version of the Maemo platform will have its application framework based on Qt instead of Gtk+. This news was announced at the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit. While the switch to Qt may seem a major defeat for the GNOME community, this isn't exactly true, as many of the underlying technologies will still be GNOME-centric.

Out of those, surely at least dbus, telepathy, avahi and bluez are all desktop-neutral? Did that perhaps mean to say Gnome-compatible or *even* "developed by Gnome people", as opposed to Gnome-centric? Because they are things that can be / are used by other desktop environments too ...
