Qt A Jolla (Sailfish) developer and a Canonical (Ubuntu Phone) developer walk into a KDE/Plasma IRC channel, and fire up a conversation about the QML component API. Not long after, the first fruits of this conversation become apparent. Aaron Seigo (who uses punctuation these days!): "Well, one thing led to another and Zoltan posted an email to the Qt Components mailing list summing up the conversation and proposing we bring our APIs into better alignment. We hope to address issues of API drift between the various component sets out there. This is a pain point others have identified, such as in this recent blog post by Johan Thelin. There is much work to be done before we can even think of calling this a success, but it's the right sort of start." Great news.

You just avoid the fact that you implicitly support unethical business practices when advocating for Microsoft.

No I choose the best tool for the job. I realize business is business and happens to work best at the time.

You don't even know what true lock-in is (I do), and what is really unethical ... Microsoft is no-where even near it.

I doubt you work in the IT industry or outside academia, contrary to whatever you may claim.
