Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This is kind of... Well, good news, I suppose? It depends on where you allegiances lie, but it seems like Ubuntu is warming up to the idea of using Qt to develop applications. It's no secret that Qt is a far more advanced development framework than Gtk+, so it only makes sense for Ubuntu - a GNOME/Gtk+ distribution - is looking at it.

what part of "what's gonna be the license of the next version" you didn't get?


The next version AFAIK will also be LGPL v3, but what does it matter since the current version (Qt 4.7) is LGPL v3?

If Nokia withdraw subsequent version of Qt as no longer GPLv3, (which would be suicide BTW for Nokia's involvement in Qt), then the community would simply fork Qt 4.7 and move on.

While Nokia continue to keep Qt as GPL, then the community will continue to support them.

Right now, Nokia enjoys considerable support, help and contribution from the community.
