The funny thing here is that Digia is still going to support Tivoization, but customers will have to pay for it!

This is utter nonsense. When customers pay they are not bound by any GPL or LGPL version. Therefore the term 'Tivoization' is not applicable at all. Looks like you have no clue what 'Tivoization' really means.

This is an example of a good password at my company "m7Rx2NqU" -- that's an unrecognizable jumble of characters that only a computer could love, but never a human.

I'd prefer to use "correcthorsebatterystaple" (ala XKCD), but my company's password policies do not let me use a pass phrase, but a jumble of numbers, letters and uppercase.

No, I don't confuse anything. Sure I can use the free version commercially. But it gets really ugly if you want to link Qt statically. And the commercial version has a few nice add-ons, which are not in the free version, e.g. the QML compiler. Fortunately there are some good reasons why someone prefers the commercial version... fortunately because if there were none, there wouldn't be a reason for Digia to go on with Qt.

I am software developer. I know my way around the Qt and QtCreator code quite well. I just don't have the time to code directly for the Qt project, since I have enough own projects. With such an extra incentive, however, I'd probably shift priorities. Maybe not only me? Could give the Qt project some extra hands... without unreasonable extra costs.

Professionalism is the ability to do your job. Costuming isn't most people's job. Pretty fucking sure wearing costumes isn't engineering. You're just mindlessly repeating the Newspeak definition of professionalism writing by the sleaze in power who want to stay in power by redefining their sleaziness as professional to either perform, if you're one of them, or obey, as one of their useful idiots.

Excellent then we can all just bring a bowl of M&Ms with the browns removed to the interview to prove our competency and ditch the ugly overpriced uncomfortable clothing. That'll stop the suite sleeze that don't know how to do their actual job from supposedly appearing more "professional" too.

The bogosity meter just pegged.

Working...
