"It has been Trolltech policy to avoid becoming embroiled in licensing discussions within the free software community. Instead, we have sought to provide the best technical solution for software developers. We have seen ourselves as coders, not politicians. Besides, these discussions take too much time."
"However, we feel that we have remained silent for too long; it is time to tell our side of the story."
"Let me point out one thing from the beginning: We love Free Software and use a lot of Free Software, and most of our employees stem from the Free Software world. We really care about Free Software like the GNU tools and free operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD. In fact, they form our main development platforms."
