Trolltech announced that they want to dual license Qt 4 for Windows
and thus release it as Free Software under GNU GPL for the first time.

Their press release can confuse people as software under GNU GPL 
can of course be used commercially like all Free Software.


 Trolltech to Extend Dual Licensing to Qt for Windows

	Qt cross-platform development software will be available under the
	open source GPL license for open source development and a commercial
	license for commercial development 

	 Qt for Windows will be available under both a commercial
	license and the open source GPL license starting with the next major
	production release of Qt, version 4.0, which is expected in the
	second quarter of 2005.
