GNOME, Linux mobile stacks, and you!
         A comedy in three acts



       I. Why mobile matters

       II. What about GNOME?

       III. Star-cross’d lovers
Act One
Why mobile matters
“   The mission of the LiMo Foundation is to create an
    open, Linux-based software platform for use by the
    whole global industry to produce mobile devices
    through a balanced and transparent contribution
    process enabling a rich ecosystem of differentiated
    products, applications, and services from device
    manufacturers, operators, ISVs and integrators.

Act Two
What about GNOME?
GNOME’s next place in the industry

        “Successful platforms allowed developers
              to reach a huge user base”

        “cannot afford to have developers spend
          weeks before apps can be deployed”

            “complete story for developers”

               “modern development tools
          monolithic application delivery format
         federated GNOME application market”
Opinionated

What is the public perception of the platform?

      How easy is it to get at the tools?

    How easy is it to get up and running?

GUADEC Challenge:
  Find the SDK
A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Qt and her GNOME.
Thank you!
