So if Digia goes non-free so kan KDE. How can this not be seen as holding to guns against freedom?
Did you even read my comment?
There are not editions of Qt, it is all the same source code, just available under different licenses. LGPL/GPL (free), or if you pay money, you get a commercial license without the GPL/LGPL restricitons and get paid support.
The Qt free agreement garuntees the free licensing option of Qt will always exist. If that option were to be removed tomorrow, KDE automatically get's to relicense Qt under any open source license they choose, (be it BSD, LGPL, ect.).
beside the agreement actually state in bold free licences only[i mean is hard to miss, you dislexic?]
btw the agreement is free to read men and is even in wikipedia and 100% public for everyone to read, maybe you could have more luck if it were secret but you not even failed at trolling or googlefu you even epic failed in reading.
im not joking unban Q, between honton/boss and ubutroll, the trolling is hitting sad low
and either way if this guy is actually a master lawyer genius and saw an actual defect that thousand of eyes missed, who in this universe imagine aaron seijo the guy who have put in hold the vivaldi tablet project until he could find open source friendly hardware providers in the ARM sector that has never even made a closed source KDE application and actually put a lot of weight for trolltech to release Qt as GPL back in the day that actually runs the KDE foundation which is the holder and a non-profit organization, will freaking make Qt closed source again? LOL richard stallman will make the GNU stack propietary and sell it to Apple for sandwiches first
No. Digia have right to do what ever they want. Existing code published under Qt Free edition will of course stay free just like any other other abandoned software.The Qt free agreement garuntees the free licensing option of Qt will always exist.
No. Digia has the right to slack off for 12 months, and then there is 3 months of notification. And by that time KDE can decide wheter they want to relicense Qt Free edition.If that option were to be removed tomorrow, KDE automatically get's to relicense Qt under any open source license they choose, (be it BSD, LGPL, ect.).
And that is still page3 for you sir.
