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.

Nokia will surely use LGPL as a license for 4.7. Their acts speak to them -- so far.

But even if they preferred to make it proprietary and never released the code, the open source community would still develop an LGPL Qt 4.7. Nokia couldprevent that, even if they wanted.
