The same reason it is being ditched wholesale by lots of places. Others 
have entrenched with 4.8 and will not move forward. When managers start 
reviewing this license thing, they take the MC Hammer approach like your 
lawyer did "Can't touch this."


Medical device work is moving/has moved to building stand alone COMM 
modules which share no memory with main device nor can they write to 
anything main CPU would use. All non-disk I/O devices are part of COMM 
module. A single high speed serial connection with a proprietary fixed 
packet messaging protocol is the only connection between main system and 
COMM module.

Qt 4.8 and widgets is way more than enough for that world. The COMM 
module is bare metal C code. No OS or extra features/functions, only the 
tiny set that got coded.
