What do you mean by "qmlpuppet"? We have had a commercial QML application
based on Qt 4.8 up and running fine on a wacom powered roughbook. Issues
like the ones with QtCreator is not a good reason enough to me to drop from

As Boudewijn said, it is not so costy to get a device. I hope Digia or
someone else can stand up to get this supported officially for those
situations where it does not work.

We do care, but it just worked for us.
