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.

The current issue is that you need add the axtra QT support for QT apps. Will the maemo community have to port apps over to QT or will there be a gtk compatability in place also. Maemo has a nice and growing library in the repositories already, some of it I don't know if I could part with.

(Also like to see native cal/todo/notes/addrs pim app with better sync than the gepsynd+opensync+syncML process to support my eGroupware)
