To be fair this is because they don't make money from the tools, they get
money by taking a cut of your sales (so called 'democratization'). These
probably aren't valid avenues for Qt. I think its difficult to come up with
a business model to sell software that's good enough to sustain your
company, especially when your code base is mostly open source under a libre

As a side note, I'm kind of curious as to how many people buy a commerical
license of Qt just to deploy it on platforms where LGPL isn't allowed vs
people that are just after commercial-only features and support.
