Hey!! Is this kind of phrase "i am not interested in c++. " driving the
linux phone development? I can never understand how is it possible to have
such a huge gap on the scale between C programmers and C++ programmers? Why
are C++ programmers dying out? Is it because some C programmers never
managed to get the point with C++ and those who did, switched automatically
to Java? I propose a C wrapper arround Qt, for the C programmers, and
everybody will still benefit, beleive me. QT is a treasure, is a nice clean
code! And it is fast!

By the way... nvidia tegra, the new dancer on the stage says "no linux on
