With Qt you get locked into a development team whose future funding is questionable.

And if you think the community can do as much as a sponsored team....no. Qt has excelled past GTK because it has a team of paid developers. Without funding it would stagnate.

Qt also has a few remaining issues with native integration in Windows and OSX that need to be worked out. If funding stays at current levels in a few years you will see a lot more interest from Windows developers.

With Qt you get the source code, and you can study it, modify it, improve it, distribute it, etc, or contract someone to do it for you. You are not locked :-)
