I don't hurt the credibility of Nokia or Nokia's employees.
This is something they can do much better than anyone else
ever could.

As I wrote, no disrespect agains the employess, but they do
not know much more than we do. They are lied to, and since
it is their jobs, which are at risk, they even light lie to

And my constructive plan? Just to continue to use Qt regardless 
what Nokia's official statements are. I don't think it is 
vanishing in the next time. The only difference is that Nokia 
hardware won't play a role in my plans anymore.

I know of plenty who already left. Long before the official layoffs
began. So much for their trust in a future with Nokia.

It is a great technology. Just seperate Qt from Nokia. For me Qt has
nothing to do with Nokia anymore, so I don't care for Nokia's 
credibility are all. I has none left.

Yes, you can hope that, but you have to plan otherwise.
