I suspect that they chose QT for Google Earth for reasons relating to your possibility #1: The devs on that particular project were C++ guys. And then possibility #2 took hold as reality set in.

QT always seems to be presented as the "shiny" solution. But where are the results?

Google, to its credit, is a company that learns from its past mistakes.
