offering devs more language options on the ubuntu 'platform' can only be a good thing.

I might be jumping a few (lots) of steps, but it could be a decent olive branch to nokia to possibly work closer together in the mobile/linux space

My first thought was Nokia also but of Ovi's apps being QT based. Potentially, the same app I run on my phone may be natively available to run on a future Ubuntu release (assuming Ovi and/or Ubuntu last long enough).
