I think Qt and Mir are solid foundations for years to come. From a
design point of view, what you see in Ubuntu Touch is our state of the
art and I would like to see it across all form factors as fast as
possible. There will of course be new challenges in future: 3D,
non-touch gesture etc. But for all flat screen interaction, what you see
in Touch is the story we want across the whole range.
