Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Expected, but still insanely cool: Canonical has just announced Ubuntu for phones. This is a new mobile phone operating system, with its own user interface and development platform. It's built around Qt5 and QML, and the interface reminds me of MeeGo on the N9. It's supposed to be on the shelves in early 2014, but the developer preview is out today.

I agree. XAML is however an open specification and people are free to implement it. Not that I think they should. I like QML's approach a little better. Immature does not mean bad in my opinion, just needing of some more incubation.

XAML's XML long syntax is getting long in the tooth and it seems like its just a DSL made for tooling rather than for developers to write.

I'd love a decent .NET Toolkit with QML (or a QML like) declarative UI markup language and from someone who's learned lessons from the XAML platforms.

I've not use QML or XAML (I am most a dirty WebForms developer), I am doing extending parts of Sitecore and I am having to learn XAML at the moment.

XAML will always have a place in my heart, I've been using it since like 2004 when it was still Avalon.

If you need any XAML help, feel free to ping me on twitter @dotnetnelson . Sometimes it is a complex beast.
