PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "There's just one problem, though: the 'nine young investors' don't really exist - according to the last tweet on the @NokiaPlanB Twitter account, it was all a hoax perpetuated by 'one very bored engineer who really likes his iPhone'. Ouch."

It doesn't matter what platform you develop on you will be locked into that platform in some way. Write for QT, you end up being locked into QT in some way, if you write your software in PHP you will be locked into PHP (facebook is an example of this and they had to develop HipHop to solve performance issues).


Yep, but .Net is tied to the Windows platform while Qt (or PHP for that matter) is not. You don't get just tied to the framework (which is to be expected since you get used to it, learn it's quirks and build your workflow around it) but to an OS that happens to be developed by the very same dev of the framework.
