I was thinking: QtGirl. Only a girl could be better than the best boy.

    If I were not already convinced to use Qt, I would be by:

    1/ qt designer demo
    2/ qt designer demo with epics aware widget
    3/ look at the xml (ui) code generated
    4/ start from the shell of a application that takes the xml file
    as an arg and display its content and connect to PV and change
    values of PV (ASgui like)
    5/ open multiple displays and characterize the load on the machine

    After seeing the above, I can immediately ditch m/edm

    6/ look at installation procedure
    7/ look at migration tools (m/edm to Qt)
    8/ look at code of a simple interface to Qt (without using
    designer in C++ / python)
    9/ integration with windows, linux, mac osx GUI themes

    complete control system environment

    10/ traditional applications (Striptool, adt, feedback app, alarm
    handler...) ported to Qt
    11/ 3rd party app (video viewers, ..., non epics aware)   <-- I
    believe the GigE pyqt app from Pavel  is in that category

    I believe as a group, today we can do 1 through 9.
    Heck, if we are lucky one single computer guru from Australia can
    do 1 through 9 alone ;-)
