See www.troll.no, but here's the synopsis:

Qt is a cross-platform GUI toolkit for Unix and Windows.  Qt releases a
special "free edition" for Unix only which does match the open source
definition, but with some licensing issues.

The problem is that linking with the Qt free edition libraries is only
allowed if you write open source software yourself.  If you want to write a
commercial application for Qt, you have to buy a license from Troll Tech.
