Qt Since the web has a tendency to overstate things: no, Nokia is not selling Qt. Today, Nokia announced that Digia will acquire the Qt Commercial software licensing and professional services business from Nokia. So I repeat: Nokia is not selling Qt.

if Qt dies commercially.

Knowing that Qt is used in many, many places (*), it's sure that a company will give support to others, even if Nokia and Digia die.

(*) Qt is most notably used in Autodesk [7][8], Google Earth, KDE, Adobe Photoshop Album, the European Space Agency [9], OPIE, Siemens [1], Volvo [2], Walt Disney Animation Studios [3], Skype, VLC media player [10], Samsung [11], Philips [12], Panasonic [13], VirtualBox and Mathematica [14].
