Because the S in LSB means standard, and to define a standard that excludes the majority of Linux desktops are not much of a standard.

It doens't exclude the mayority of linux distros, 95% distribute the GTK-Gnome libraries LSB is listing.


But it still exludes the majority of Linux desktops and any ISV wanting to develop applications for it and releying on the LSB.

Only if the ISV wants to close the source. Source that would include TrollTech copyright code. Source that may also contain non-TrollTech copyright code.

TrollTech has an OPTION to ALLOW you to close the source by paying a licence fee. You may not have that OPTION if you use other open source not copyrighted by TrollTech.

If you distribute binaries based on open source code, you are responsible to provide the source if asked by the person or company that requests that source. Modifications are not necessary for most licences; it kicks in at the time of distribution.
