All of the above.

Any good alternatives in your opinion, especially if you want something that has good cross-platform concurrency support?

I'm no longer a fan of cross platform development. While it means extra work, I believe it is better to choose the right tools/languages for each platform and get the best out of them. Cross platform development just means we get mediocre results on multiple platforms with extra headaches throughout the software's life cycle. It was a nice experiment but in the end it just made things bad and rewarded sloppy development practices. We lost a lot chasing cross platform development, endless frameworks and complex toolchains. Give me a good C compiler any day and let me build it right rather than just right now.
