 I said that conditional on you knowing or wanting to learn Python. Python interacts with Qt in much the same way as C++ interacts with it, but without the annoying compile and link steps of C++ (Python is an interpreted language). Qt was designed to work with C++, and so development with Python and C++ should be faster than most other Qt interfaces.

So if you already know Python, and your R scripts are already in the can ready to go, there's less point learning, or even constructing, some R-Qt interface than using the well-established and robust Python-Qt interface.
