They managed to contribute a good amount of code to Linux, but piss off everyone from low level users to high level hackers.
Their "Open Source Advocacy" was closer to "binary apologist" for proprietary software.
It is really amazing to see how fast all this unfolds and how quickly they self destruct and lose billions of Euros (literally). When the N900 came out, it was the ultimate Linux device, but Nokia totally blew the momentum. Android went from nothing to dominance. I wonder if being able to actually use functioning Google servers had anything to do with it...

https://bugs.meego.com/show_bug.cgi?id=615 <-- continued failure
Nokia, good riddance.

Trolltech is long gone. There is only one possible route to go with QT: fork under a new name. Let the forking begin. This is going to be primarily driven by KDE devs.
