"Open-source contributors say they'll pull out of Qt as LTS release goes commercial-only"
@huy_ngo It could, but I don't think it will cause any dramatic changes. My guess is that the project will eventually be forked into something libre and community driven.
@hund wanna bet on who is going to fork QT now and on the name of the fork?
My bets: the KDE team, `ktk`.
@hund I feel this suicide by Qt will only bring us more Electron garbage.
That being said Electron garbage that also runs on Linux is better than Win32 applications that don't.
@fedops We still have other toolkits. I hope that they eventually fork Qt into something fully open source though. Qt is a good toolkits. :)
