Often those customers aren’t new to QNX, but new to Qt. And often they need the latest and greatest Qt for some feature or bugfixes.
Other third-party dependencies they can’t get migrated (or even recompiled) often make them stick to old QNX versions. Things tend to be somewhat more complicated than one might be used to, in the embedded world.
