        They just keep on pushing Qt to be everything except what it needs to be - a stable, bug free and capable software development framework.

        It saddens me to think of the developer effort wasted by their terribly misguided management.

        So many wheels reinvented over and over again, so much catering to short lived fads, so much bloat and code duplication, and still - missing important functionality to make it a complete solution, introducing new bugs faster than solving the existing ones.

        Any evidence of starving families there?

          Why? You only start asking your employer for money when your family goes hungry?

            The 3 featured with prices are $2000, $3600, $2880, all of them per year. The Qt Marketplace must be aimed at companies.

              I wasn't aware employees have to ask their employers for money at all. I always assumed people just get paid every month as long as their contracts are running.

              At any rate, I doubt such funds get proportionally distributed to employees neither. Fixed income for the employees, save for an occasional annual bonus, with the excess fruits of their labor being pocketed by executives and such,

                  Because with almost all of the framework being available as LGPLv3 there is little money to be made where they are. Their options are to push to GPL or make more products. Anyway the marketplace seems orthogonal to that. It is mostly just making existing products more visible, including lots of products from third parties in the Qt ecosystem.

                    Linux needs a completely free gui library.
