While I wish all the best to the affected developers, and have no doubt
that they'll be able to find a new exciting job soon, I hold the selfish
hope that they'll continue to work together as a team and not be
dispersed in different companies. Otherwise, even if the new job is
related to Qt, it's difficult to image that they'll be able to continue
developing the great technologies they've been working on so far, with
the same pace.
That is something which, I believe, can be done only when being part of
a company (or foundation) which invests in R&D.
I don't know whether forming a SW consulting/development company with
focus on QML would be a sustainable business, but I hope that they
consider this possibility before splitting off. :-)
