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.

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

Mark of delusioned MS/C#/VS fanboy. Products that use the "Linux development stack" generate _billions_ each month.

Just because there aren't that many bright people on this planet and enterprises need fill their ranks with stupid C# devs that don't really understand anything and need VS handholding all the way does not mean that it is any good.

The world is build on C and C++, deal with it.

Anyways, I have used VS and QtCreator and sure VS is more versatile, but for C++ development QtCreator compares quite well and for Qt development it is unmatched. It is also faster, cross platform and develops at a much faster rate.
