Kind of strange they don't push a Mac version too.
Not too rarely people on a project will use tools that cover all OSes,
even while the present versions of their application can run on only two
out of three OSes. When that happens with Qt, I think some of it comes
from Qt licensing, which makes you pay for each platform that you are
developing for. IMO that licensing scheme is a significant
contradiction of the concept of cross-platform development.
Also that makes me wonder how many proprietary projects are using
cross-platform tools already, but presenting only a Windows version so far.
