Well said, André. That's my opinion too: both sides will continue to co-exist 
for the foreseeable future. If any side gets an upper hand, it will be due to 
the collective efforts of the people involved and the evolution of the 
technology itself.

I actually, fully do expect QML to come out dominant for the UI (all form 
factors) but not for any number crunching, with JS being relegated to what CSS 
stylesheets are today: minor touches or poor coding practice.
