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.

Autodesk are taking Maya all QT, and the company I work at couldn't be sure of the license situation, so felt they had to buy a development license to develop QT Maya UIs. I don't believe they had to, as QT could be used LGPL, and we aren't talking about software that is released, its tools to help internal Maya artists. As it was decided we had to buy development license to use QT, there was the normal BS about do we really need it bought, can't we just not use QT, etc etc. In the end QT is now bought and used, but it was a faff. One that wouldn't have happened if it wasn't dual license. Keep it simple, use one license. Free or not free, no if's or but's.
