Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Apart from well-known editions such as the normal Ubuntu and Kubuntu, the Ubuntu project includes several other variations as well. One of those is Ubuntu Mobile, which targets Mobile Internet Devices and netbooks. While this release currently uses GNOME Mobile, Canonical's David Mandala has stated that they may look at Qt 4.5, which will be released under the LGPL, as a development environment.

RE: better using the EFL

for mobile software, using the EFL (set of libraries used by enlightenment) is a beter choice:

* small footprint (e17 itself can run on Treo with 32 MB of RAM)
* very fast (fast on set top box running at 200 MHz)
* beautiful gui (see http://calaos.fr/pub/video/calaos_media_music.ogg for a desktop app or http://www.rasterman.com/files/illume-freerunner.avi for e17 on the freerunner)


Okay, that covers the graphical side of things, but what about the rest of the stack? Database access, network communications, HTML rendering, JavaScript processing, and so on.

QT is a lot more than just a graphical toolkit. It is an entire software development framework.

"Okay, that covers the graphical side of things, but what about the rest of the stack? Database access, network communications, HTML rendering, JavaScript processing, and so on"

* we have a database lib based on a berkely one. nothing more, though
* network communication: we have (sockets, ipc)
* html rendering + javascript : webkit uses our graphic framework (with the help of cairo, though)
* and a lot more, like qt or glib/gtk+

the EFL are not only a set of graphic libraries...

I don't want to troll, that will be my last comment, but please, before stating something about the EFL, inform you a bit

A big part of what needs to happen with QT is to replace out all the redundant crap already implemented in stdc++. Since Qt no longer must rely on locking in developers to make money the long term maintainability issue should be dealt with very soon.

Like what? The few container classes it implements?

The people really need to check what actually *is* in c++ stdlib. Hint: posix isn't part of that.
