The only difference that comes to mind is that the first group can use 
Qt Creator under its commercial license, which may come with some extra 
features (not exactly sure of which ones, at this particular point in time).

The second group can instead just use Qt Creator under its open source 
license. The open source license of Qt Creator itself does NOT extend in 
any way to the software you develop (cf. the GPL FAQ).
