Windows For Microsoft, the traditional desktop is old news. It's on its way out, it's legacy, and the harder they claim the desktop has equal rights, the sillier it becomes. With companies, words are meaningless, it's actions that matter, and here Microsoft's actions tell the real story. The company has announced the product line-up for Visual Studio 11, and the free Express can no longer be used to create desktop applications. Message is clear.

Thanks! While they work on the new Qt SDK version, which would include Qt Creator 2.5, in we are reminded that "Qt Creator IDE can also be downloaded as a standalone application, although we recommend to get it via the SDK".

The present Qt SDK version, 1.2.1, released on April 11th, that can be downloaded from, contains:
- Qt libraries version 4.8.1
- Simulator for Symbian phones and the Nokia N9
- Qt Creator IDE version 2.4.1
- Qt Mobility version 1.2
- Qt development tools
- Remote compilers
In Windows, that is
- Online installer - 15 MB
- Offline installer - 1.7 GB
1.7 GB only if someone wants to install *everything* (!)
