comment How should C++ Unit Test code be organized for maximum Unit Test efficiency?
@DanNestor - Sorry to say that I never found anything good. Too much Dogma, Simple-Examplism and focus on non-C++ languages in the UT/TDD world, so you'll have to use your own guidance.

@DavidRicherby : If it is a legal question then the answer is specific to the jurisdiction and the q should be closed as too localized. :-)

@stijn - of course actually telling people what is bad about these points might be much more interesting

comment Storing a pointer to an argument passed by (non-const) reference
+1 useful view, although I do not quite see why a (raw) pointer would signal ownership transfer

comment Why aren't more desktop apps written with Qt?
It's funny that this question hasn't received more upvotes, given that it is really the only one actually addressing the real historical reason why "mainstream" desktop(=Windows) development did not adopt Qt. First the licensing was crap, and then, when the licensing finally caught up, people were already using .NET or were locked into their legacy MFC stuff.

Have you thought about the option of a separate "branch" (whatever TFS calls this) per client instead of a separate project?
