Qt It's a rather unclear time over at Nokia in Espoo (Finland!), with people coming and going, and changes in development strategy. The latest one is, I think, a good one: Nokia has stated it will commit fully to Qt as the sole application development framework for both Symbian and MeeGo.

"Some would say "over-sensitive". You did realize I was just pulling your chain, right? ;-)

I've actually found the Pythonistas to be the most open and accepting open source community of any I've tried. As a long-time Perl enthusiast, I never felt patronized by Pythonistas. It's one reason I use more Python than Perl now (though I still use both, and we use more Perl on my work team than Python).

I was replying to a comment on this thread which was rude about non-python Qt bindings for no apparent reason. I can see why people like Python even if I personally prefer Ruby, and there is never any reason to be rude whatever your preference.

On a more general (and on-topic) note, I've looked at Qyoto, but it seems to be targeted only for desktop use, not MeeGo and Symbian programming. Could you point me to any examples of Qyoto for the latter?

No it isn't there yet. I started working on Smoke libs for MeeGo touch and the Qt Mobility apis at this years KDE Akademy, but I haven't managed to do anything since. Those projects need to go into Gitorious. Then we need to move Arno Rehn's 'AssemblyGen' project into the KDE git repo. Finally we need to move the KDE language bindings like Qyoto from svn to git, and get Qyoto working with AssemblyGen. All this will probably take a good six months.
