[Interest] Qt is good because...

Well my money is on Elop (Flop as I call him) reversing course and going to Mer, or something of the sort. There is still some fight in him. Nokia Lumina devices will be priced at $99 here in the US, which might get the low-end market. But the N9 is still the flagship.

I heard that every time you compile an Qt-app god saves a kitten from certain death.

For me the show stopper in Windows Phone is that you cannot push the 
application logic to C++ and integrate 3rd party C and C++ libraries.

The cross platform thing is two ways.  You can target cross platform, 
but you can also develop cross platform.  For instance, when developing 
a symbian application I start on Linux with Qt Creator, testing with 
simulator.  When ready to test on device, I recompile the same project 
on Windows using Qt Creator there and deploy and debug on device.
