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.

And this is how it should be. Developing software for ego is pointless, software is developed for usefulness. It doesn't matter one bit how "GNOME centric" a library is, what matters is that these are all technologies that together build the foundation of what is known as "the GNOME project". "GNOME" isn't just a bunch of people or corporations who strife for personal recognition, it's a rallying flag for many diverse (but interoperable) free software desktop technologies.
