"Over the last few years one of the most vilified companies
in the Linux space has been TrollTech , creators of Qt. Qt, as
you'll recall, is a key technology in KDE, serving as the
library-level basis for both KDE and KDE apps."
"TrollTech has been vilified by the Free Software community --
i.e., the Free Software Foundation and later the Debian organizers
-- for not releasing Qt initially under the GPL. While undoubtedly
TrollTech made some mistakes, the reaction among the Free Software
crowd has continued to be shrill and out of proportion to any
complaints they may have...."
"Despite the attacks by the Free Software crowd, TrollTech has
managed to grow (there are now 40 TrollTech employees, and the
privately held firm recently attracted $8.5 million in venture
capital) and become a central player in the world of Linux
development tools, first with Qt and now with two new exciting
developments: Qt/Designer and an embedded version of Qt."
