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.

Member since:

GPU acceleration required + more javascript = a big meh, as far as I'm concerned.

Why have square wheels when you can have round ones?

That is essentially the logic that you're proposing. It is more energetically efficient to use asics designed for the task at hand instead of throwing generic compute muscle at a problem, why is graphics any different?

If most machines include dedicated hardware for graphics why not optimise for the majority?

Last but not least...since when have any accelerated uis needed Gaming level gpus?
