[Closed] Nokia abandons Qt
It seems that Nokia is going to abandon Qt, since it is not going to bring them any profit. Reported in here [slashgear.com].
So these questions may clarify many people/Qt fans out there:
- Will the growth rate of Qt be the same as it was (after 2008)?
- Will Open-Governance model save us?
- Is Qt like a Linux kernel (the most believed open source) project? – I mean will this be developed by developers from around the world without any Company’s backing?
- Is there someone like Linus Torvalds for Qt? – who could be a visionary for Qt.
- Who will determine the future enhancements and roadmap of Qt?
- Since Nokia has dropped it and Android has a huge market share, will Qt s focus be diverted towards Android, atleast by a margin?
- Will someother company going to buy this? – Let this be considered of less significance, because we cannot think of another company dropping Qt later.
If we have a good opportunity to make Qt grow even mature, what can we do to keep Qt alive and growing?
I can’t really comprehend, whether this post could come under Announcements or Brainstorming. Pardon me if I have posted it in the wrong segment.
The wait is over. It is Digia at last. Digia acquires Qt. [digia.com]
Let us hope that this is a good thing for Qt fans.
