KDE "The KDE community today announces the start of the Calligra Suite project, a continuation of the KOffice project. The new name reflects the wider value of the KOffice technology platform beyond just desktop office applications. With a new name for the Suite and new names for the productivity applications, the Calligra community welcomes a new stage in the development of free productivity and creativity applications for desktop and mobile devices."

"... the very announcements call the OS "flagging" and "troubled"."

That wasn't the announcement, of course (unless "thenextweb.com" is the new Fujitsu corporate website :-D ), that was one of many news articles reporting on the announcement, along with some editorial liberties.

No question that Symbian has lost significant share, much of it to Android and iOS. I rather like Nokia's QT-based cross-OS strategy (and MeeGo), but they still have to execute to make that a success. Fortunately for them, their #1 position worldwide gives Nokia a bit more room - perhaps one more year - to build some momentum before they run out of runway.

Since I favor choice and lots of it, I'm rooting for them and their kindred.
