    Question [moved] Android, iOS mapping to Windows Phone. Where's Qt?

    I know we've had quite the discussion about Qt on Windows Phone earlier. Given the apparent insistence my Microkia that Qt on Windows Phone would impair the Windows Phone developer community experience by way of fragmentation, it should be expected that *no* API mappers should see the day of light, right?
    Well, here's iOS and now Android:

    What gives? Can anybody enlighten me? What am I missing here?

    the site appears to be about porting, thus I'm missing the point you are trying to make here..

    Let me rephrase: What's the migration path for Qt based apps to Window Phone? There are obviously efforts for iOS and Android, which are, well, a little less closer to Nokia.

    Yeah sure that's the snarky answer.

    Considering there's a ready-made community out there on Qt that's soon be looking for a new home you wonder if they've got it all together out there in Seattle...
    Besides, Microsoft chases an illusion if they believe iOS and Android developers will be lining up to port apps to Windows Phone through portability toolkits. Especially Android will never work right anyway, and the iOS toolkit looks like a vehicle for yet another IP lawsuit.
