Qt After many months of designing, coding, reviewing, testing and documenting, Qt 4.7.0 is finally ready for the big time. Although it's a little more than nine months since Qt's last feature release (4.6.0 on December 1, 2009), the seeds of some of the new stuff in 4.7 were sown much earlier. Indeed, many of the ideas behind the biggest new feature in Qt 4.7.0, Qt Quick, were born more than two years ago, not long after Qt 4.4 was released

That's also true for COBOL and FORTRAN and MS Windows. Good company, eh? I mean, to be honest, that's really a terrible argument. Christianity as been around for a long time, as has prostitution and murder. Does age really mean anything? Not really. Just because C++ has been around does not mean it's the be-all, end-all.

Look, C++ is not a well-designed, well-implemented language. It's not good for RAD or business apps. It has its pluses, but mostly in the metaprogramming, performance-computing and research arena. For writing business apps, it just doesn't make sense. You have to do so much work, deal with slow and difficult compilers and work around semantics problems in the language. Why bother when you just need to make some forms and DB connections? Just use .NET or Java for that.
