Tragedy if Qt is lost...I love Qt



  • Then there would only be Microsoft WPF ( a mess) , MFC or .net5

    all NOT open source...

    I've written at least 3 "simple" Qt apps I can email.

    Quick learning via not so complex examples as those from Qt

    chart is a great example but complex!

  • I am using my Nokia 2720 after trying a lot of ATT junk



  • Oh dear, the "What's going to happen with Qt" or "Qt can't die!!!!1111oneone"-threads are popping up quicker every day, it's like a plague!

    Don't take this personally but I think there are better ways to advertise your Qt Examples than creating a topic with such a title, copying some text from the other thread and post a link to it... And then tell us, what phone you use. Maybe it's just me, but I don't see the point ;)



  • *exactly the type of attitude that plagues these forums and starts flaming wars

    a popular forum just dropped several admins because of this*

    I am overlooking your post

    This forum has been friendly so far

    NOTE NB this original post was posted in the "lounge"

    BTW the examples are ready to go straight to nearly auto installation

    that amount of text would be a mess to acquire and put in the right place under the right file name



  • Qt is not lost.

    I agree , It was there even without the NOKIA brand name. There are lot of other topics on the same discussion like

    "An Open conversation about the future of Qt":http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/18055/
    "Nokia abandons Qt":http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/19305/
    "Future of Qt":http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/18657/
    "Qt SDK discontinued?":http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/19036/
    "tragedy if Qt is lost…I love Qt":http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/19327/#post_reply

    Shouldnt all the discussion be at one place instead of creating 10 -15 topics and saying the same.

    "Nokia - -connecting people- firing people" :-(

    My intention was not to start a flame war. If someone got this impression, i really am sorry.
    Still, there already are tons of such topics, and Sam even did the work to link some of them.
    I just think it's kind of sad that whenever I look into The Lounge, two out of the three topics on top are about how Qt is going to die or not having a good future.
    Regarding your thread title, I'm very confident that as Volker pointed out, Qt is not going to die, so I see no reason to worry ;)
    There are just too many people working hard on Qt, so even if Nokia wanted, it would fail to kill Qt.

    So, again, I don't want to insult anyone or bring an unfriendly tone into the discussion. Sorry if that was the impression my previous post made.



  • Oracle (Larry Ellison) has so far bought:
    SUN
    MySQL
    others... faint memories

    hopefully IBM never buys Qt



  • -@moderators-

    -similar topics like this should also be Closed ?-



  • A tragedy indeed, I hope this never happen!



  • If you were really interested in Qt, you should already have heard of the "recent announcements":/forums/viewthread/19443 regarding Qt's bright future... no? :)
