Qt is dual-licensed; and one of these is the GPL. There is nothing that
excludes Free Software development and distribution from being a
commercial venture as well. (Please note that I said "commercial" and NOT
"proprietary".) In fact, the GPL explicitly allows one to charge for the
product in terms of the physical act of copying or warrantied support or
the like. (It's the actual licensing which you are not permitted to
charge for.)
