Working with software for over 10 years with c / c++ / php / javascript / SQL in windows, linux, symbian. Mobile, embedded & desktop development.

comment Why aren't more desktop apps written with Qt?
to your point nr 1. I think c++ does have kind of semi-automatic memory management: if you use smart pointers like std::auto_ptr or boost::shared_ptr etc. you generally dont have to care about freeing memory. These kind of containers can be made for other resources as well (files, system resource which have to be freed). Use of RAII-pattern helps very much with memory management and as it grows into you, you dont really have to worry about memory.
