I can't understand why someone would willingly use C++ to develop user applications ( not systems dev ) in 2011. Even Android promotes Java for this.

Why do you assume you have to use C++ to develop Qt user applications? People use QtQuick (declarative programming with QML + JavaScript) to develop user applications without C++. Not to mention PySide and all the other language bindings. However, I really DO want my UI/system libraries to be written in C++, simply because of runtime speed and memory consumption.

One of the amazing things about the US the wide varieties of cultures, cuisines, and natural beauty it contains. I love Europe and would love to travel in Asia some-day but for much less cost I can explore the great variety of my home country.

I'm surprise you say that, having visited different countries. The variance in culture and cuisine within US is insignificant respect to the world as a whole. I live in South America, and visited South Asia, North Africa, Eastern Europe, North America and the Caribean. I've been to both coasts and center of the US, and can attest that deep down you're all the same.
You want to say different cultures, think of Tokio vs Marrakesh. That's difference.

The use of boost will greatly limit the amount of supported platforms and compilers. Replacing Qt collections with STL will kill the embedded branch, where code expansion counts. It'll also not be nice for the deskop - imagine loading a Visual Studio plugin while another plugin is loaded that uses another STL implementation -> boom, symbol clashes.
