Submission + - Programming Languages For Desktop Applications (phoronix.com)

jones_supa writes: Bart Massey, an X.Org Foundation Board of Directors member brought up open questions concerning why desktop applications are harder to develop than for mobile/web and whether the choice of programming languages is to blame. During the talk he also observes how the classic widget metaphor requires a lot of boilerplate code and abstraction which might not be intuitive to manage anymore. On the other hand creating apps with rich interactivity in a browser is rather clunky too. The audience brings up QML as one solution to help the burden. What are your thoughts?
