Controls 2 are for "embedded" - what at least means to me: not being for 
desktop applications.

... and by dropping desktop specific features.

But does your statement imply, that Qt development has mostly given up QML 
as a technology for the desktop ?

If true, was it done because of:

a) seeing Controls 1 as complete and satisfying
b) something is wrong with the implementation of Controls 1
c) the overhead of QML is too big for such large projects
d) nobody is interested in the desktop at all

And what is recommended for us users: better starting off with widgets 
for new desktop applications ?
