<pvanhoof> gtk+ didn't really help the maemo-gtk+ stuff
<pvanhoof> That as a result meant that meego-harmattan got qt based
<pvanhoof> That's history, of course. But we did try hard to convince people at

<pvanhoof> Yes we did

that's, quite frankly, a fairly sizable pile of bull.

Philip has absolutely no clue whatsoever about most of the decisions
that went behind the transitions from Maemo to Qt.

As a person who was a full-time employee at Maemo during that time, I
can testify to that. *If* there was any technical reasons (there
weren't really), it was C vs. C++. The most important fact to keep in
mind here is that decision to go for Qt was not made by Maemo side of
Nokia. Keeping that in mind, I don't see any exaggeration in
Emmanuele's statement above.
