The question being asked is whether Qt on the desktop would also be forced to whither away under the MS infection. The nervousness of the development community is not about Qt on mobile, that horse has (just) been put out to pasture; it's about the desktop. What should we do, what should I do, when it comes to cross-platform C++ development?
In my opinion, Qt's main strength has always been cross platform on the desktop; one code base to run on OSX, Linux, and Windows. Of course, MS would love to throw a proverbial monkey wrench into the development fray to halt the defection to other platforms. It was never in MS DNA to promote development on Linux and OSX. Just watch, MS will be MS; and Qt on the desktop will stare at yet another fork on the road...
