Symbian going open

A lot has been written in what regards to Symbian becoming an open-source operating system. The scheduled moment for that to become true seems to be 2010. In the meantime, some facts prove that they are taking it really seriously.

For example, the new Carbide C++ 2.0 has just been released for free. A bit sad for spending money this year on some Carbide Pro licenses, but a step forward into openness. Next step: kill Symbian Signed (or at least, seriously re-think of it).

[EDITED 2009-01-21: This post was written long ago but it was saved as a draft and not published -do not know why-. Published now! :-) ]
