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
PALO ALTO, Calif. - February 07 2005

Trolltech?, a provider of leading application development software, 
today announced that it will extend its successful dual-licensing 
business model to include the Qt? cross-platform application development 
framework for the Microsoft Windows operating system. The availability
