So exciting that even after 13 years of introducing to Qt by my great teacher, Mani Monajjemi there’s still a lot to learn.
I was trying to use WinRT with Qt today and now after so long time sticking to MinGW, I’m switching to MSVC. Here are the 4 reasons
- MinGW is opensource but deep down if you are in Win32, their compiler always offers better API compatibility
- WinRT is available only on MSVC
- If you ever get around to some dll that simply doesn’t work with your project, it’s because MinGW and MSVC ABI are not the same. and probably that DLL was compiled by MSVC not MinGW. Same OS and still a different ABI, sounds too Windowsy to me
- Because you are on Windows, show some support to the closed-source community!
