    Qt is very good but costs an absurd amount of money - at least for independent developers or small businesses.

      "Free" seems like a great price to me. I can't imagine there's any reason not to use the LGPL licensed version for commercial products.

        If you want to use it for embedded devices the LGPLv3 might not suit your business model. Also you get support with the money, and it is not very much by western IT costs.

          I wouldn't really want to be the guy arguing this at work, but at least one blog seems to argue LGPLv3 isn't a complete death knoll for embedded:

          But yeah, paying for the commercial version for the public release builds should management not buy this guys' arguments sounds fine, but mine is a larger company who can afford the squemishness. For zoomblab's "independent developers or small businesses" they can simply take the advice linked above from the start and avoid the expense.
