Submission + - Nokia/Trolltech to License Qt as LGPL 1

CarpetShark writes: Following their acquisition by Nokia, Trolltech have added an LGPL licensing option to Qt. Qt (pronounced "cute", not "Q.T."), the main widget and OS abstraction layer used by KDE and many other Free Software projects, is roughly equivalent to the GTK+ library within GNOME. However, GTK+ has been LGPL from the beginning, which has, arguably, led to increased support from corporations such as Sun etc. This raises interesting questions on the future of Qt (increased contributions?), the future of KDE (more corporate contributions and sponsorship?), and also the future of interactions between KDE and GNOME (since they'll be using more compatible licenses).

A bug in the code is worth two in the documentation.
