    Qt works quite well with python on both windows and unix. That's what we use at work for developing our GUI's.

    Correct however QT has a simple license if you make money with your product so do we (on the license) and if not not!

    Huh? QT does not make money off the products of our company.

    I was under the impression that in order to sell/distribute software made with QT you needed a commerical license from them?

    Yes you would need a commerical license. No it doesn't mean they are now entitled to a percentage of your profits from the products you make.

    what he meant by that is if you sell your products you need to acquire that license there for the license brings them money from you selling your product.
