Mono Project For the most time, I've been firmly in the largest camp when it comes to the Mono debate - the 'I don't care'-camp. With patent lawsuits being hotter than Lady Gaga right now, that changed. For good reason, so it seems; while firmly in the 'ZOMG-MICROSOFT-IS-T3H-EVILL!1!!ONE!'-camp, investigated the five most popular Mono applications, and the conclusion is clear: all of them implement a lot of namespaces which are not covered by Microsoft's community promise thing.

Whoa, Qt does not do memory management "for you". You still have to delete just like any C++ framework.

If I recall correctly all the Qt classes take a parent pointer as a constructor argument. The parent keeps track of all it's children and deletes them when the parent gets deleted. While not the panacea of memory management, it does help a lot. For other things there are always auto_ptr and shared_ptr to ensure proper deletion when resources go out of scope.
