I am suffering with you. I really wanted to use Qt on Windows
and you can easily download and install Qt/Windows. I wanted
to distribute dream (a software DRM receiver) and when the
audio encoding licensing was worked out I got excited. Then
I realized that Qt/Windows was not free. You cannot build
and distribute code that uses it without their license.
The same is true for all versions except Qt/X11 Free.
Good luck in your quest to escape svgalib!

OK - I didnt get to the point of downloading
Well back to the drawing board...
