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.

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?

And then, there's still the agreement KDE has with Nokia that basically puts the last version of Qt under BSD if Nokia stops releasing Qt as free software.

That's kind of the sad little plan. ;-)

I especially liked the license thing. For years these people had a massive go at Qt for being GPL licensed. Then it gets LGPL licensed and people.......go quiet. But hey, the license could be changed! I mean there's no central copyright assignment so Nokia would have to go around and ask for everyone's permission, but it really doesn't matter how small that probability is.

It's a laugh a minute on these articles.
