Qt, now also GPL!

Trolltech has announced that Qt 2.2 will be released under the GPL! Read what LinuxPlanet/LinuxToday has to say about this here, ZDNet also reports, and an editorial by Matthias Ettrich and Eirik Eng here.

Trolltech definitely deserves a big thanks on this. This move should squash the license flamewars, will lead to better code sharing (Kimp or KEmacs, anyone?), and will improve KDE acceptance in general. As a user of Debian, personally I can't wait for KDE inclusion in the dist.
