hey Troll - how about some libraries for Macs ? Is that possible ?
Trolltech on Qt, KDE, and the QPL
The disputes here seem more about splitting lincense hairs than what software like Qt (and GCC and Postgres ...) provide us with: great free software for the home writer. The licensing diffs between each product (project ?) effect primarily commercial use of the software and I hope it all gets worked out. Troll, like any of us, gotta eat. And if they can make some cash why not?
I think Troll dropping QPL clause 6c would be of enormous value. Writing internal software and being attached to (and dependent upon) lack-luster compilers with pretty interfaces is horrible when at home you have this great free dev environment. Free licensing of internal corporate use is a great idea.
And about the lack of a free windows editon - does Windows really need a set of good, free gui dev libraries ? Hmm? I'd like to write apps that would compile well for both platforms, but I think the risk of opening it up to windows is just too great.
Just my 2 cents - I hope you all work it out !
ps: no offense iron-horse GTK users - I've used it and liked it but the c-like interface does drive me crazy. Somebody above finally quantified that for me - Yrd I believe.
