    Tell me again how any code that goes into Qt is not LGPL licensed and therefore non-free, maybe we can see what it is really the problem with you not understanding dual licensing.

    Fixed that for you.

    So LGPL is a non-free license now? Just get over it, you outed yourself officially as a mindless troll.

    Maybe we let Honton himself answer this question:

    You just debunked yourself.

    It's the same way of adoption as it is done with webkit. Now let me try to apply your logic: webkit is not free software, because otherwise Digia would not have merged it into Qt. Gnome heavily integrates with webkit-gtk, which also incorporates webkit (that apple crap, you know). Now you also can say, that gnome uses f** non-free software. Agreed?

    And if you know so much about phonons history, you also should know that phonon actually was developed by kde developers to get away with relying on one solution for audio (just remember arts). As it turned out to be quite good Qt decided to make it available for everyone using qt and bundled it. They merged kdes phonon from time to time to stay up2date.

    I already answered the question. I am not going to repeat it. You refused to read it the first time, I see no reason to think repeating it will improve the situation.

    Completely ignoring everything I said, as usual.

    Lying again, as usual. All Qt code must be dual-licensed GPLv2.0 and LGPLv2.1. They will not accept any code under any circumstances that is not under both of those licenses.

    Qt is licensed under a commercial and open source license (GNU Lesser General Public License version 2.1).

    Even for a troll like you this shouldn't be hard to understand, but I am not expecting anything from you.
