 Trolltech: A case study in open source business

Interesting article about Trolltech, makers of Qt.

"Initially, Qt was available only under a proprietary license that allowed non-commercial development. That attracted a lot of criticism from the free software community. Now it is available under the GPL on all platforms, including Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. Yet, some still argue that the dual-licensing arrangement is a dirty deal, supporting the free software community while penalizing proprietary vendors whose work might otherwise boost Linux's market share. That is probably not true, and here is why."
