I usually heard how nice is to develop using Qt. How it's easy, community friendly, last surprise, etc. But I never saw the big guys interest in the Qt owner.
Just wondering if a better future would be in the landscape if some big company with good open source compromise (in theory) like Intel buy Qt.
But your managers already heard of someone that filled a bug in any MS product and get it fixed? But a real case with link to it, not the urban legend "I have a friend that found a bug on IIS and MS fixed it. Who will fix a bug on Apache?".
And, in the other side, your company can, for sure, make contracts with big Open Source guys, like Red Hat and Canonical.
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
