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

Read the C++ FQA. It's not just beginner mistakes. The language is fundamentally *nasty*.

I've also done C for quite some time. I've done assembly. I even wrote my own assembler and my own virtual machine. I've done C++, Java, Perl, PHP, C# and, sigh, even VBA. I have books on operating system kernels and how the computer works on a low-level. I've taken classes in that stuff. Believe me, I'm not just saying this because I don't get pointers. I get pointers. I can deal with C++, but it's such a fscking pain and the more I use other languages, the more I find them to be considerably superior except in the performance/memory-usage department. Better, though, is to write most of your app in a managed language and write the performance critical core in C++ or another unmanaged language.
