back to article Nokia's Trolltech Qt Software previews cross-platform IDE

Nokia-owned Qt Software (formerly Trolltech) today released a tech preview of its cross-platform environment for creating embedded applications on Mac, Windows, and Linux machines.

    Gotta love 'Cute'

    Of course, you could develop in a cross-platform manner before this, but this should make it easier. Hopefully Nokia's ownership will do nothing to dull Qt, only improve it and make it more mainstream (mainstream = better community, more investment by Nokia).

    It would have been nice to have a longer article though, perhaps something saying 'Nokia bought Trolltech (blah blah) and it has been used by companies such as Google for-
