Qt Digia has announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire the Qt software technologies and Qt business from Nokia. Digia has sent a letter to the KDE team that it intends to pretty much continue what Trolltech and Nokia built up, so not a whole lot ought to change for KDE - luckily.

"Does anyone think when Nokia becomes cheap enough, MS will buy them out?
Basically everyone believes that. Elop was put in charge of Nokia for a reason, while still being paid by Microsoft. "

My suspicion is MS just wants Nokia's patents. Like what they did when they destroyed Silicon Graphics. They will acquire the patents at bargain basement prices and then let Nokia slowly die.
