Microsoft and Nokia adopt jQuery

Exiting news on the jQuery blog yesterday:

Both Microsoft and Nokia are taking the major step of adopting jQuery as part of their official application development platform. Not only will they be using it for their corporate development but they will be providing it as a core piece of their platform for developers to build with.

Great news! I really like the jQuery JavaScript library.  I can do things with jQuery in 5 minutes that would ordinarily take me weeks. So far it must have saved me weeks and weeks of development time.
