Ars technica reports that the OpenMoko dudes are switching to QT and Enlightenment?!?!? Cuz you know E17's gonna finally take over the world. It's like totally hand optimized assembly to make your titlebars render faster and shit.
The reason for the switch?
OpenMoko developer Holger Freyther explains that the decision to adopt Qtopia was primarily motivated by the need for software that works today and he comments that the community members are still welcome to contribute to moving the GTK-based stack forward as well.
Oooooh, your shitty phone with a GPL dialer wasn't good enough huh? But don't worry, the "community" will develop the interface that we're totally abandoning. Cuz you know, there are so many OpenMoko users out there that will want to save your discarded, rotting pile of fecal matter, let alone the one that you actually maintain.
Going with Qt means they got a raging clue. But using "Enlightenment technology" shows they're still raging mad.
