PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless We've got some breaking news, folks: Intel and Nokia have just announced a partnership in which they will merge Maemo and Moblin into a new product called "MeeGo", aimed at just about any type of device you can imagine. This is one of the rare (but very welcome!) moments of convergence in the mobile Linux space.

Yeahhh....

Clutter is a Scenegraph engine for the Linux desktop. If you don't know what 'scenegraph' is the A)look it up in Wikipedia, B) your obviously not a programmer.


As far as QT vs Clutter...

I know what Clutter is and I also know that Qt itself has similar functionality built in.

Why replicate something in YADL (Yet Another Damn Library) that replicates what Qt does? Except Qt does it with a nice set of exposed classes and an API that is programmer friendly.

This is ultimately what is costing GTK and the 'development environment' around it traction and developers - it's a massive panopoly of dependencies where developers aren't sure what to use, everything is programmed in a different way, nothing is really standardised and deploying and maintaining those dependencies on a distribution is a nightmare.

Not to mention that hacking an object-oriented system onto plain old C means that programming with plain GTK+ is ugly and necessitates tons of boilerplate code.
