Hey folks, good news for Qt and KDE.  Nokia has decided to license Qt
4.5 under the LGPL (press release here:
http://www.qtsoftware.com/about/news/lgpl-license-option-added-to-qt).
This is a big deal for anybody who was having to choose between GTK and
Qt based solely on license.  Now you can always use the best tool for
the job.  And you won't have to pony up $5,000 if you want to write a
little app for a smart phone and make some money from it.
