Hello, i'n new at this forum so sorry if it is not a good question fod this forum.
I'm looking for a good gui framework for commercial software development, i learned qt and it is really great but i dont like lgpl terms because they allow me to develop closed software if i link dynamicly to qt and share qt source blah blah blah, it doesnt matter but my users are authorized to modify qt libraries and link my software against them and reverse engineering, etc. Also commercial qt is too expensive.
I neex a framework that allows me to develop closed code software without those limitation and a full featured toolkit, i would preffer cross platform but windows is ok
PS: mfc and winapi discarded, and also i would like to hand code my gui instead of using a gui designer.
What about wxWidgets? They have added a clause to the LGPL license to make it less restrictive, with people like you in mind.
wxWidgets is currently licensed under the "wxWindows Licence" pending approval of the "wxWidgets Licence" which will be identical apart from the name.
The wxWindows Licence is essentially the L-GPL (Library General Public Licence), with an exception stating that derived works in binary form may be distributed on the user's own terms. This is a solution that satisfies those who wish to produce GPL'ed software using wxWidgets, and also those producing proprietary software.
