Qt Since Nokia announced its switch to Windows Phone 7, people have been worried about the future of Qt. Well, it turns out Nokia is still going full steam ahead with Qt, since it has just announced the plans for Qt 5. Some major changes are afoot code and functionality-wise, but the biggest change is that Qt 5 will be developed out in the open from day one (unlike Qt 4). There will be no distinction between a Nokia developer or third party developer.

As I already told you in another threads, in the IT world VM based environments + JIT are more valuable than the previous all native solutions.

The hardware allows it, and people prefer the productivity gains to the difficulty to deal with low level APIs.

Surely you can also create high level APIs in native languages, but no one seems to care about it.

It does not mean I agree with it, but it is the reality, and I doubt any of us will be able to change it.
