QT is the foundation of KDE, the desktop and the huge abundance of software available for it would not have been possible without the underlying QT libraries. The next generation KDE desktop, 4.0, is already under way and will be based on version 4.0 of the QT libraries.

The Opera Web Browser is based on QT.

The popular light web browser Opera is a good example of what is possible to do using the QT toolkit.

The license change now makes it possible to develop multi-platform GNU-licensed software capable of running on Linux, Windows and Mac using QT.
