PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Remember back when Nokia jumped to Windows Phone 7, abandoning all other platforms and future directions? Remember Elop's infamous 'burning platform' memo was coveniently 'leaked' to the web? Remember how Elop claimed Windows Phone 7 was the only way forward, since nothing else inside the company would be ready for prime time soon enough? Remember how I thought this was a very good and sane decision? Well, the first reviews of what will be the only MeeGo handset from Nokia (the N9) are in, and well... To whoever decided to go WP7 and ditch MeeGo: I don't like you. To myself: I'm an idiot for arguing this was a good idea.

The development environment for Meego apps would have been Qt Creator and QtQuick, not EMACS.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qt_Creator

"Qt Creator is a cross-platform C++ integrated development environment which is part of the Qt SDK. It includes a visual debugger and an integrated GUI layout and forms designer. The editor's features includes syntax highlighting and autocompletion, but not tabs."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qt_Quick

http://qt.nokia.com/qtquick/

"Qt UI creation kit lets you create rich, touch enabled UIs and apps, quickly."

If you are going to try to make a credible point, and so avoid being ignored, then you should at least stick to the facts.

Please. Qt Creator is like one rung up the ladder from EMACS.

WP7 development tools are really marvelous compared to the fucking terrible Android SDK.

Hardly.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qt_Creator

Qt creator includes:

- Projects
- two integrated visual editors, Qt Designer and Qt Quick Designer
- Language aware code editor
- context-sensitive help on classes, functions, and symbols
- targets, including mobile targets
- version control systems
- Qt Simulator
- integrated support for debuggers

So, eight rungs up the ladder from EMACS.

WP7 development tools are really marvelous compared to the fucking terrible Android SDK.


What on earth has that statement got to do with Nokia's N9, Meego, Qt, Qt Creator or Qtquick?

Not sure what's bad with Emacs, or what it has to do with the Qt Creator. Did you even use it?
