Qt After Nokia purchsed Trolltech last year, doubts arose about how Nokia would handle the dual licensing model of Qt, the advanced cross-platform toolkit which lies at the base of the KDE Free software desktop. As it turns out, these doubts were unfounded, as Nokia today announced it's going to add the LGPL to Qt's licensing model, starting with Qt 4.5.

Gtk+ suddenly lost the single biggest appeal it has.


You mean apart from being faster, lighter and with more/better bindings to more langauges?

Even from the C++ angle, GTKmm is way better than Qt for the simple fact that it doesn't try to be a complete application framework, replacing the standard library and with it's own build system like Qt, it is just a GUI library and a very good one at that.
