What should an Indie license be? a License is a license, right?

The website in general works for me, and there is a contact form: [qt.digia.com]

You don’t miss anything – there aren’t any prices.

You will have to contact Digia, either using their contact form, or

There is even an official, Tuukka Turunen [developer.qt.nokia.com], present here at the QDN.

When the licences were still sold by Nokia, I believe that they cost something like EUR 1400 per developer for a single platform licence. You could also buy a 2 or 3 platform licence at a few hundred per additional platform. No idea if Digia is using a very different price model, but I doubt it.

If you need more exact data, you have to ask Digia, of course.

Note that you may also considder using the LGPL version of the toolkit. That would be a much cheaper option for an “indie”, I think. The limitations are not such that it is impossible to develop commercial software that way.

Just a note: I think that this post maybe moved somewhere else, i.e. The lounge subforum…

Qt Desktop Multi OS – 4.195,-
Qt Embedded Single – 4.795,-
Qt Embedded Multi – 5.595,-
Qt All OS – 6.395,-

All prices are in Euro and per developer.

Sorry for dumb question, but i cant find complete answer for this.
What can I get for this price?
And what difference between opensource version and version from Digia?

With a commercial license you are not bound to the restrictions of the GPL or LGPL licenses. For example you can linke your closed source application statically or you can modify Qt source code without the need to publish that changes.

I see.
And probably some support from Digia.

Yes, that is included too. However, you can also buy Qt support from other firms, no matter if you use LGPL Qt or commercial Qt.

I find this prices outraging. They sell something you already have access to at gold prices…
Incredible! Better to develop in open-source, which in addition gives a contribution to society.

Cheers!

If it’s too expensive for your – nobody forces you to buy a license. Go with the LGPL version and be happy. There’s nothing to flame about this. If you run a business making money out of the software you build on top of Qt, it’s likely that the license fees are negligible compared to the other costs. And there’s more you get for the money than only the license, e.g. dedicated support, bug fixes, etc.

Let’s be happy that there are that much options and everyone can choose what fits ones needs.
