It`s Qt [ pronounced cute] formally Trolltech now Noka. Qt is a cross-platform application framework. Using Qt, you can develop applications and user interfaces once, and deploy them across many desktop and embedded operating systems without rewriting the source code.

I am just giving you some URL´s to check out yourself to begin with a blog of one who you may not expect to blog on something old as C++ instead, it`s Mike Gualtieri from Forrester Research.
