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.

If someone wants to share their code, license it free, that's ok.

If someone wants to take advantages of free/libre software... but deny this to others... support Qt at least.


It's 2010, Qt is under LGPL. It's perfectly okay to use Qt with closed source software without paying anyone.

Ok. Now what?

With commercial license, you can ship your own modified version of Qt without disclosing your modifications. Most users don't modify Qt.
