If we lived through Java on mobile devices (which actually is quite virile
even today), and that's one language hasn't built it's reputation on speed,
then I can't accept c++ as a language being stereotypically labeled 'slow'
and 'bloated'. Yes, you can write inefficient code in c++ if you don't know
what you're doing, but so can you in almost any other language. I really
hated C, the pointer errors I had to correct (often in other peoples code)
drove me mad, but again, one could argue if done properly, pointers and
mallocs are no headache - well they were for me, I try to avoid even looking
at such code if possible.

Agree2, did code with both Qt and GTK+ and I did find my way around in Qt much
easier, but that certainly is a personal preference/experience. But please
note that just because you already know a language, toolkit or framework it
doesn't mean that the other alternatives are universally bad. It is simply
outrageous that people here judge whole frameworks by their screenshots or
preconceptions on a language they have not really spent much time working
