Qt A Jolla (Sailfish) developer and a Canonical (Ubuntu Phone) developer walk into a KDE/Plasma IRC channel, and fire up a conversation about the QML component API. Not long after, the first fruits of this conversation become apparent. Aaron Seigo (who uses punctuation these days!): "Well, one thing led to another and Zoltan posted an email to the Qt Components mailing list summing up the conversation and proposing we bring our APIs into better alignment. We hope to address issues of API drift between the various component sets out there. This is a pain point others have identified, such as in this recent blog post by Johan Thelin. There is much work to be done before we can even think of calling this a success, but it's the right sort of start." Great news.

That's the way to collaborate, instead of barking at competitors with patent threats like Apple and MS do to others.

Microsoft, Apple, and patents are the new Godwin's Law on OSNews.

This thread has absolutely nothing to do with either of them. Why the inflammatory rhetoric?

Just a demonstration of difference in approaches. Proprietary mobile scene is filled with paranoia and fear of competition, which results in you know what. Open source mobile scene shows interest in innovation and collaborative effort.
