To me XAML looks more like Qt .ui files.

XAML is not cross platform, and you cannot develop on Linux.
It's not just about existing applications, but also future
applications. Some people like to bet the company on a platform with 1
percent market share and bad track record in mobile space, but
personally I like to hedge my bets. How many "good and massive" mobile
apps are being started for Windows 8 only, compared to iOS or Android?
In Qt world there are exiting grass roots projects like Raspberry Pi,
developing Android support. Who knows what will come out of those.
When something great comes out, it will then be the moment either smack
your head saying "I wish we had supported Qt", or smile and say "good
thing we supported Qt"
PS. http://mpaja.com/Mopedi is one "good and massive" Qt app for
symbian, I know, I wrote it ;). I'd like to think my other apps are
less massive but still good.
