        Those "Freeloaders" are the only reason there even is a Qt in 2022.

          I'm sure all your work is available for free. And, of course, far more valuable than Qt.

            I'm far from sure about the validity of this statement.

              What was wrong with the dual license model in terms of revenue? Why did they need to decouple QML compilers? I fear that will lead to poor maintenance of the free one.

                You are who you are, so I have zero doubts you have no clue about anything.

                This list mostly contains of GPL/LGPL users. Nearly all commercial customers of Qt are in the embedded business, from interfaces for industrial machines, POI systems, gamble machine interfaces, Infotainment Systems and going as far as specialized interfaces for ARM MCU based systems. Those are the business areas that usually pay for Qt. Those are the industries Qt usually addresses. Those are the industries were people who used Qt, often through their use in FLOSS software especially KDE, in the last 27 years stick with it instead of switching to more modern and more reliably licensed alternatives.

                  I am not a company, and I do not write on my website how seriously I take the GPL and its meanings.

                  I am a single person and of course my work is always GPL licensed, only GPL licensed.

                    Such as? Is there anything outside of Windows that fits that bill?
