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.

Considering Nokia loosened the licensing terms when they purchased Trolltech, plus their push for Meego as an open platform for phones/tablets, which QT is their main contribution, I think it is a safe assumption that QT will remain LGPL.

You are attempting to spread fear, without a slightest bit of evidence, that Nokia may close the platform, despite already opened it up further than it was before.

Stop spreading FUD, troll.

Geesh, what the hell are you babbling about? Qt was before MORE restricted than it is now, Nokia opened it up. And hell, even if Nokia for whatever reason decided to change the license the currently released version would still remain LGPLv3. They can NOT retroactively change the license on already released versions.

Thus, even if a miracle happened and they decided to shoot them in the foot by closing Qt up people could still continue to use the current one and just fork it and continue on improving on it.

Now, will you please shut the f*ck up and stop spreading completely unfounded speculations and try to scare people away from Qt?
