OS/2 and eComStation For some months now, independent developers have been working on a Qt4 port for eComStation, and it's almost ready. Some Qt4 applications have been ported to eCS, as well. This project is funded by donations from the eCS-OS2 community and currently they have 82% of the needed sum.

RE: Qt is the future

I know about Qt, but don't do programming in C/C++ language. I can say that Free Pascal (FPC) and Lazarus has already beat Qt - based on your statement (platform count supported). FPC & Lazarus's slogan is: "Write once, compiler everywhere". FPC is a Object Pascal compiler that supports 15+ platforms and chip architectures, and Lazarus LCL framework supports GTK1, GTK2, Qt4, Mac OS X Carbon, Windows Mobile and Embedded Linux devices. All without the need to change your code, simply recompile your existing code for the target platform. Very cool!


Oh, and Object Pascal is so much easier to learn and write than C/C++, yet just as powerful and fast.
