Dear Mr Turnbull:

I would like to add some color to your assertion that "mobile" support 
is "embryonic" at best.

The compilers used by Qt are the NATIVE compilers for 

There can be nothing more ROCK solid than using the manufacturers 
command line tools to create solid binaries for their own hardware.

Companies like embarcadero (maybe xamarin) have created their own 
compilers and will forever be behind the curve.

As for desktop, when the customers ask for Desktop in Win/OSX stores, I 
will just charge them $350/month for the months that it takes to debug 
them (already debugged on IOS/ANDROID) and put them on the store.

So Indie still allows you to get the most important work done and the 
add commercial desktop if needed.  Very few customers think OSX/Windows 
is nice to have, but IOS/Android is of utmost priority.

Woe unto those that discover Qt too late to buy into Indie.
