Comment: Hope someone big in open source buy the company (Score 1) 59

I usually heard how nice is to develop using Qt. How it's easy, community friendly, last surprise, etc. But I never saw the big guys interest in the Qt owner.

Just wondering if a better future would be in the landscape if some big company with good open source compromise (in theory) like Intel buy Qt.

But your managers already heard of someone that filled a bug in any MS product and get it fixed? But a real case with link to it, not the urban legend "I have a friend that found a bug on IIS and MS fixed it. Who will fix a bug on Apache?".

And, in the other side, your company can, for sure, make contracts with big Open Source guys, like Red Hat and Canonical.

Wii had an easy controller, easy appealing games, like Wii Sports and Wii Fit. With WiiU, they said they gone hardcore. But the hardcores don't want Nintendo products. So, I'm a casual gamer. I loved Wii. My wife loved. My tiny kids loved, because it was easy. Now, with WiiU, they offer a bad tablet experience, that requires recharge all the time. No easy controller, no wide appealing games. Wii Sports, Wii Fit, all the best selling games for all the times. Nintendo is the only company over the world, that produced a big hit in the market (and their best selling product), and denied it totally later.
