Qt Digia has announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire the Qt software technologies and Qt business from Nokia. Digia has sent a letter to the KDE team that it intends to pretty much continue what Trolltech and Nokia built up, so not a whole lot ought to change for KDE - luckily.

Wonderful news.

I love Qt mainly for how extensive, easy, well-documented and just pure awesome it is. Hope it sees continued development and improvement for many, many more years.

:D

But aren't you supposed to hate Qt for brining mostly the same look across different OS, with multiplatform apps? ;)

You're absolutely right. Qt is only awesome in Qt-based DEs. In Gnome (for example) I want GTK+ apps. ;)
