With the news that Trolltech has decided to extend its dual licensing strategy to Windows, that means that Windows users will be able to use Qt-based GPLed software for free. That’s great news, because many people use Windows for a variety of reasons, and there are many good Qt-based programs that can now be run there for free.
I use a Mac primarily, but I also use Windows regularly. So, I’ve never given the eric3 IDE a try, because I couldn’t use it cross platform. With the GPL release of Qt for Windows, maybe I’ll be able to. It looks like there is still a question of whether Riverbank Computing will follow suit with a license change for PyQt.
