You can get it with some QT Learning Books or you can apply for a copy yourself. 2004-04-29 12:46 pm I hear this all the time, but when you consider what we have on Linux and the Mac, it is rather pointless. The vast majority of free software is used on non-Windows platforms. 2004-04-29 2:25 pm Well, looking at the OpenOffice.org statistics for 2004-04-17, there were 6.9 million downloads of the Windows binaries compared to 2.2 million downloads of the Linux binaries. Granted, that doesn’t take into account the fact that most modern distros bundle OpenOffice, but it does show that there is a demand for free software on Windows. Having a GPL version of Qt for Windows would be nice for developers and users a like. But I do realise that Trolltech need money to survive, so I guess what they’re doing is definitely the best option. 2004-04-29 5:40 pm Well, looking at the OpenOffice.org statistics for 2004-04-17, there were 6.9 million downloads of the Windows binaries compared to 2.2 million downloads of the Linux binaries. An Office suite is a major application, so it would be well used on Windows. Other OSS stuff is not well used on Windows, but it is on other platforms. The Gimp is a good example. Besides, the download figures are not accurate, as many Linux distros have their own repositories for installing software. Many more millions of people will download it from there or get it installed as part of their distro.
