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, The-Source.com 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.

For other things there are always auto_ptr and shared_ptr to ensure proper deletion when resources go out of scope.


Those are usually not needed in Qt programs, Implicit Sharing is the real productivity booster:

http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.6.2/implicit-sharing.html

QPixmap p1, p2;
p1.load("image.bmp");
p2 = p1; // p1 and p2 share data

QPainter paint;
paint.begin(&p2); // cuts p2 loose from p1
paint.drawText(0,50, "Hi");
paint.end();
