...is that it just doesn't die because somebody says so.

A lot of noise has been made about Intel closing up the MeeGo shop and heading for new waters, but predictably, a lot of people aren't very happy with this move, both individuals and companies who have products based around MeeGo.

I won't rehash the story any more than that, except to say this: MeeGo, or the ideals of it - an open mobile-oriented platform featuring Qt is still very much valid and needed, and it's not going away. There's some discussion already going on on the MeeGo lists about how best to continue, already.

Watch this space. MeeGo (in some form or other) is not dead, and neither is Qt.
