Hi Guys,

This is my first post to this list, I usually just peruse conversations to
keep me connected with what's happening in Qt . Feel free to put me right
if I break any conventions.

 I've been using Qt for a little while and recently  started development on
a commercial,  cross platform/device product with it with the intention of
getting an Indie license. I'm a one man band with very little money
available for tooling and chose Qt because I like it and can afford the
indie license. I really like Qt and want it to succeed but this licensing
change is only going to hinder the uptake. I hear the argument about the
indie license not being taken up to any great degree, but how many
developers are in a similar situation to me and have invested in learning
Qt with the idea that the indie license makes it  commercially viable to
produce their own commercial product at sometime in the future? What I'm
saying is that just the indie license being there is an encouragement for
developers to learn Qt even if they don't buy it. If the Qt knowledge is
out there, it's going to get used in more projects because developers will
choose it because they know it and presumably like it.

I sincerely hope this licensing decision is reversed
