This is all very interesting to me -- particularly the diversity of IDEs. Clearly people have their pet favorites.
* n810 since Feb 2009
* Most-used apps: Opera, gPodder, Panucci, Tomiku, Canola, Quasar, MaemoMapper, ATI85, Maemopad+, AisleRiot Solitaire, Anagramarama, Rapier, Gnumeric, pyRDesktop
* Mobile-friendly URLs of popular sites

(This is a university group research project, but I feel it's still relevant here)
Language/s: C/C++ (with Qt). Looking at Matlab (if anyone has experience with using Matlab/Simulink on embedded Linux, systems, please PM me - there are a few questions I'd like to ask you)
IDE: KDevelop4/Vim (Linux), XCode (Mac), and probably VS on Windows, but I haven't asked the Windows guys
Project: Positioning technology (hardware && software)
Progress: Prototype essentially done, but partially blocked by a third-party bug.
License: Not sure yet, and not in my control. Backend code at least will be proprietary, as far as I can gather.
Distribution: Internal research for now, but exploring options for the future.
Purpose/goal of project: Develop a cross-platform, infrastructure-free solution for use in mobile context awareness, routing, etc.
My personal reason for joining was to give me an interesting project to work on; I need/want to learn Qt and the Maemo Platform, and I learn much faster diving in headfirst than studying from a book. Oh, and the loan of an N900 was a small part of it. Thanks Nokia!

Without a doubt one of the best threads here. Thanks to code177 for starting it and to all contributors doing such a great job of helping us noobs enjoy the N900's obvious potential. I have no idea what most of you folks are talking about here but the 'purpose/goals' section has me checking apps manager regularly in anticipation. Big cheers!

apps, development
