Novell and Ximian Rumors circulating that Novell is going to kill off its popular Linux desktop lines are completely false. [However,] Novell is making one large strategic change. The GNOME interface is going to become the default interface on both the SLES and Novell Linux Desktop line. KDE libraries will be supplied on both, but the bulk of Novell's interface moving forward will be on GNOME. "The entire KDE graphical interface and product family will continue to be supported and delivered on OpenSuSE."

There are no royalties involved if you code with Qt. To quote the KDE myths page:

There are no per-product or per-sale fees associated with Qt development on X11, Windows or MacOS X, open or closed source.

You do have to pay a per-developer license fee, however horrible it is to have to pay for service and support. It must really suck having to spend money to make money...
