Qt As some had already anticipated when Nokia acquired Trolltech, the next version of the Maemo platform will have its application framework based on Qt instead of Gtk+. This news was announced at the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit. While the switch to Qt may seem a major defeat for the GNOME community, this isn't exactly true, as many of the underlying technologies will still be GNOME-centric.

I'm trying to figure out why you'd use glib, or what you'd use it for, if you're mainly writing software in C++ on QT. My understanding was that glib mainly provided an object system for C: C++ has its own, different object system already.

GObject is just one part of glib. The library also offers other things such as data structures and utility functions for all sorts of things. However, QtCore offers largely the same things.
