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.

While this might add a bit more time to development, I ultimatly believe this will benefit the platform as a whole. QT seems to me like more of a future ready tool kit, while GTK (in the last year or so) seems like the code base is getting a bit cluttered. Just personal opinion of course, but I made the switch from GTK2 to QT a few years back and I haven't looked back. Good luck Maemo team.
