This is certainly arguable. For some, I guess coding in C++ is hard. For others, it's as natural as breathing.

In fact, it leads to my particular issue: QML. I waited a long time for Qt to reach a point where it was usable for mobile development, and I personally was disappointed with the declarative approach taken with QML. Aside from being somewhat out of character for the framework, it seems to have been a divisive approach, creating a separation not only between interface and code, but between languages! Jean-Michaël's point abovehighlights that.

I want to code mobile in a language I use on a daily basis for things other than just mobile. I realize it is a great fit for some people, but unfortunately for me, QML isn't. I've therefore had to turn my attention to Xamarin (especially now that it is integrated into Visual Studio). I've never been much of a fan of C#, but it is certainly closer to C++ than QML.

(No QML flame wars, please. I'm just expressing my personal situation, not saying that QML isn't useful for some people.)
