Microsoft Qt Framework Pokes Fun At MSFT-Nokia Partnership

MSQtThis had to be coming. After Nokia CEO said that the popular developer framework Qt will not be part of their Microsoft deal for Windows Phone 7, someone definitely had to get pissed off.

After all Nokia has been trumpeting about Qt to all their developers for a long time and even did a huge show about it at the 2010 where they awarded money to the best apps.

So what does Nokia do with Qt now? NO one can say, but a smart guy definitely came up with a site which could possibly be mistaken for an actual QT port for Windows Phone 7. Don’t get fooled though, it is just a satire and is poking fun at Nokia. I bet there will be several other developers who will be saying "What a waste of time it has been"

MSQt Guide

The website in question is and was registered on Feb 12 2011, after the Nokia-MSFT decision. I must say that the person who created the website devoted a lot of time to it since anyone will be fooled thinking that it is an actual Qt port for Windows Phone.

Don’t forget to read the footer though, which I will divulge here:

This is a satire, for the real Qt website go to
