    Well, Qt is a business, no one can deny that. Being open source or Linux friendly is only a temporarily thing. Anyway Qt is more than a widget toolkit these days, it is more like a framework covering all sorts of platforms and kernels. That will always conflict with the best interests of free Linux platform. Digia is lucky though, the social bribing going to KDE is paying off very well. Qt is more monolithic than anything else. Everything is scooped and put under the coplyleft killing CLA. Still no one questions the motives of Qt. KDE surrenders code from the kdelibs. this means part of former KDE copyleft code is being CLAed and monolithic. It is quite interesting to watch. Compare that to systemd.

    The commercial Qt grows like monolithic cancer and kills off copyleft for commercial purposes, and people like that.
    The community based Systemd grows monolitchic for the sake of keeping maintenance cost and overall complexity low, and people hate that.

    It is a matter of social bribing.
    Regardless how often you repeat your blatant lies, Qt is still licensed LGPL, which clearly is a copyleft license. Go troll somewhere else or, just for one time, go out and try to get a life.

    $149.00/month for 10 GB and 1,000,000 I/O events? This is not price competitive at all.

    Compare Amazon S3: 10 GB, 1 GB out/month (in is always free), 250,000 put/copy/post/list events, 750,000 get events: $2.50/month! Even if you add in the use of a database service, you'd still be looking at somewhere between $10-$20/month. Who in the world would use Enginio at the prices they're listing?

    IOW "on the cloud" means your access can be restricted, your data read, deleted or changed. And it's your fault.

    > a widget toolkit?

    In http://doc-snapshot.qt-project.org/qdoc/qtmodules.html we can see more modules, not only widgets; like Core (non-graphical classes), Multimedia, Sql, Network, etc.

    In this case, if someone wants to store and manage some services (like gigabytes of storage) in the cloud, he can do it using the related Qt libraries.

    Like it was previously said, if someone doesn't need it, he doesn't have to use it.

    I don't understand their business model.

    Sounds like bloat!

    Soon Qt is gigabytes...
    Fortunately Qt 5 is modular, so you don't have to compile or deal with modules you don't use. No different from QML for widget users, or multimedia or positioning for developers that doesn't need that.

    ...It's no better than having Facebook Connect support in the password box. This kids is why having a for-profit company responsible for a major component is bad.

    Or make that "for-profit company that's in a different business". RH or Cygnus haven't yet pulled shit like this.
