tizen meego html5
Intel has announced it has teamed up with Samsung to ‘evolve’ MeeGo in to the Tizen project.
Not too many details are known yet, other than a heavy emphasis on HTML5 (which unfortunately does not seem to bode well for the QT and QML efforts previously pushed by MeeGo and Nokia).

Very annoying. Why not use QTs built in ability to use HTML elements within applications? I feel like I’ve been wasting my time.

Asking myself the same question as APS. Why on earth not to use Qt???

How about the work that all those developers invested using QT? HTML5 is just for WebApps. Noboby will buy a tablet or netbook that only runs a fancy Web browser without the ability to run a normal native application (written in C++, openGL, etc.).

This might not be the best possible place to ask this, but what happens to QT?

Hi, from what I’ve seen & heard here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTSLjIS0nZI I assume that it will not be replaced but added new API to present code, as MeeGo compatibility was declared. So, it should not be wasted time, I hope. You can examine this yourself there. Time will show the true.

Whatever excuses will ocur this seems to me the deepest mistake of Nokia, lost of reputation, depreciation of morale of employees and contributors, sadness of enthusiasts (yes, this is what I feel…) and really, really, really a big pity. And M$ influence effects. Additional effect is closing Nokia’s factories in Europe – what a huge progress!! but for who? Let me know when you will find out. Only slaves throw away best pieces of gold to glorify defecation wastes. “Guilty of any crime is that one who have benefits” – from Latin. “This is worse then a crime, this is stupidity” – Talleyrand, French politician.

Don’t worry folks, it’s open source remember? Anyone can customize it in whichever way they want. For example the WeTab version will have Qt support: http://wetab.mobi/en/4tiitoo-ag-erweitert-den-offenen-ansatz-des-wetab-os-mit-der-integration-von-tizen%E2%84%A2-und-html5/

The WeTab company states that THEY will support Qt. This emphasis on WeTab to continue Qt support would not have been necessary if their new partner Tizen would have done so. They clearly want to reassure Qt developers that their applications will still run on the new Tizen-WeTab. Why would that reassurance be necessary? I hope that Asus and Acer will come with the same statement for their MeeGo devices, but I fear they will simple move to Android and Win.
