Spot on.

People run scared from Boost-like C++. That kind of code is very performant
but it's neither easy to write, understand or, in many cases, figure out.

On the other hand, Qt is usually love at first sight. Makes C++ look
doable. Even easy. Sure, some people who have spent a lot of time writing
C++ move on from Qt and like Boost-like code the better but that kind of
code, those APIs, are to blame for the very bad opinion many people have on
C++. They hurt C++ jobs.

Replacing QThread with std::thread? Please don't.
