Yesterday was Qt's 25th birthday

through ups and downs, changing home too often, and despite politics you are still around after 25 (twenty- five!!!) years. without you there would be no krita. happy birthday.


this wouldnt be in the #develop category, this would be in #lounge, if i’m wrong please tell me why. i have a link to what the category is for here. for this reason i have moved it.
i also have a link to what the category #lounge is for here.

this is news related to the development of krita. if you are not aware what this is all about feel free to check the following links.

Conversational stuff w/o actual dev talk could be considered on or off-topic because it’s not clarified. Qt is a dependency of Krita, but so are the fonts in Krita, for example. Totally interpretation-dependent, so then whether or not such topics should be moved becomes do-we-care dependent. Both currently an individual choice. For the record, I am indifferent to what category this is under.

As a developer (not a Krita developer -a developer at the office and occasionally a plugin developer) I think the best place is in the #lounge because even if it’s Qt related, talking about Qt’s anniversary is more a casual informational thing than a technical development subject about features and improvement for which we need to discuss about…
But if it was an information about a new Qt version with new features that could be used for Krita, the #develop category would be the right place.

After, like @tapatilorenzo, I don’t really care where the topic is placed (as it’s not in artwork), information was here and interesting (thanks @CyMonk because I was not aware of this :upside_down_face:)

But in the doubt, let an admin to decide where is the best place and just keep cool and enjoy the day, there’s no reason to argue :wink:

Lets hope 5 years from now we can still say good things about it. The current trajectory isn’t much favourable but we will see, :wink:

@CyMonk, unfortunately, Qt cannot have a real cake from us but, they can have a digital one! :cake:
