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.

Where did I say anything about source code?

If you sell a QT-based app, you need the commercial license.

If you don't sell it, you don't need the commercial license.

And, if you are a commercial company, but don't release your software to anyone, using them internally, then you don't need the commercial license.

No you don't. It's normal LGPL license like with Gtk+, look it up.

You're right. Sometimes people confuses this. A program can be GPL and be "sold". A program can be LGPL and be "sold".
