Qt After many months of designing, coding, reviewing, testing and documenting, Qt 4.7.0 is finally ready for the big time. Although it's a little more than nine months since Qt's last feature release (4.6.0 on December 1, 2009), the seeds of some of the new stuff in 4.7 were sown much earlier. Indeed, many of the ideas behind the biggest new feature in Qt 4.7.0, Qt Quick, were born more than two years ago, not long after Qt 4.4 was released

It doesn't matter what Oracle does at this point, Java will never be as clean and Qt isn't tied to a single language.

Java on the server isn't safe either.

People like Shuttleworth need to get over their attachment to GTK and Gnome. Qt and KDE have better teams and better plans for the future.

Qt just has to hit the tipping point where it rivals Apple's native toolkits. A Qt port is in development for Android as well.
