Now this is interesting.
I've mentioned a few times in my blog that the world would be a
different place if Qt was given a free commercial friendly license,
like LGPL. Of course when Trolltech was an independent company, that
would have killed all their revenue. But now that they're owned by
Nokia, I guess the time has come for them to make the change.
I think this will open people's eyes to Qt. It's certainly a very rich
framework giving pretty much everything you need to make a truly cross
platform application, i.e. #ifdef free. And it's used in some very
popular applications like Skype, Google Earth, and the VirtualBox
manager. And, of course, it's the foundation of the Linux KDE desktop
environment, which has it's devoted fans.
