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

and those are the kind of apps we are talking about, after all, since the topic of conversation is Qt, not general C++ usage

Qt is not just GUI. It is actually suitable for low level programming in embedded systems in your car, in your phone and in your fridge. Java requires lots of memory and an energy sucking processor.
Anyway, I do business apps in Qt because I need to deploy easily on a large number of computers with different setups. I can not afford to ask my clients to install a virtual machine. I deploy the static binary and it just works.
