You are correct about the problem with proprietary compilers although
"good", "clean" code "should" compile on different compilers. Most
"GNU" code already has the problem that it will not compile with
"native" compilers. This is especially so when it comes to C++. So the
"lock  in"  argument holds either way.

Are you sure that you will get a commercial Qt license for 199$? Or is
this a license for the Kylix Qt wrapper and you can only use it from
Kylix "Turbo Pascal". Do you have any experiences with this?
