PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Remember back when Nokia jumped to Windows Phone 7, abandoning all other platforms and future directions? Remember Elop's infamous 'burning platform' memo was coveniently 'leaked' to the web? Remember how Elop claimed Windows Phone 7 was the only way forward, since nothing else inside the company would be ready for prime time soon enough? Remember how I thought this was a very good and sane decision? Well, the first reviews of what will be the only MeeGo handset from Nokia (the N9) are in, and well... To whoever decided to go WP7 and ditch MeeGo: I don't like you. To myself: I'm an idiot for arguing this was a good idea.

Qt creator includes:

- Projects
- two integrated visual editors, Qt Designer and Qt Quick Designer
- Language aware code editor
- context-sensitive help on classes, functions, and symbols
- targets, including mobile targets
- version control systems
- Qt Simulator
- integrated support for debuggers

So, eight rungs up the ladder from EMACS.


I'm glad it supports the basics, I really am. I exaggerated a bit, but the point is the same. Qt Creator is no Visual Studio. Its good, but not good enough.

The Linux development stack is woefully immature for any kind of serious development.



What on earth has that statement got to do with Nokia's N9, Meego, Qt, Qt Creator or Qtquick?


WP7 is the alternative to MeeGo (and by extension Qt Creator, and Qt Quick) and Android is the other option Nokia could have chosen.

I don't really understand this animosity towards Microsoft and Windows Phone. I mean, sure, some dissapointment that Nokia gave up on its OS that was way, way off of schedule and not showing much for it, and it just happened to be Linux. I get it, its upsetting, but damn. Its been nearly a year already, get over it.
