Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"I've been itching to work with Qt in more depth since I
took a look at it some weeks ago, so I took the plunge and went for
Qt and C++."
"At first I thought my biggest obstacle would be getting more
proficient with Qt. But it was the process of relearning C++ that
gave me the most trouble. After all, I've only written a few useful
C++ programs, and that was many years ago. Sure, I have an
excellent memory, but it's short. So I forgot even some of the most
basic principles of C++ programming...."
"In view of the fact that I'm not using one of the best features
of Qt, was the effort to relearn C++ worth it? Absolutely.
Programmers of GUI-based Linux applications tend to lean toward
either C++ and Qt or C and the Gimp Toolkit (GTK)."
