    The best way to deal with it is to banhammer everyone that does so at the tip of a hat, "ignoring" the troll does not really "work". It never does.

    It's the safer way to react if you don't know better, but it does not make them go away.

    But GTK freetards keep attacking QT for being "non free" for something that was barely true in the 90s, nevermind today.
    I seriously doubt anyone really involved GTK is "attacking" Qt. Feel free to provide a source of that. Qt was definitely under a proprietary license at that time. There were other valid issues such as C++ making other bindings harder than C. That remains true till now.

    Qt is far from being perfect too... it's bloated with a billion dependencies, and obsolete core designs like QStrings.

    I think the first thing they should focus on for Qt6, is to get rid of all those dependencies and make the toolkit lighter instead of adding features over and over.

    IIRC it was GTK splitting that started it due to unfounded concerns over Qt licencing
