    "No. It was an abstraction layer needed by Qt to serve different DRM platforms to the paying customers."

    No, it wasn't.

    "Later it was tossed over the wall and adopted by KDE for reasons unknown to man kind."

    It was never "tossed over the wall", nor was it "adopted by KDE". It was created by KDE for KDE.

    Do you have a source for that?

    That is the difference between you and me. I knpw what Im talking about and know Phonon's history.
    Actually, no, you are not. The code keeps to be GPL licensed and there is no copyright transfer (which is in many European countries not possible anyways). As said in other threads before, you are not a lawyer, so your interpretations of the licenses and CLAs/CAs are meaningless. Now go troll someone else.

    Qt is licensed under a commercial and open source license (GNU Lesser General Public License version 2.1).

    Even for a troll like you this shouldn't be hard to understand, but I am not expecting anything from you.

    Lying again, as usual. All Qt code must be dual-licensed GPLv2.0 and LGPLv2.1. They will not accept any code under any circumstances that is not under both of those licenses.

    Completely ignoring everything I said, as usual.

    I already answered the question. I am not going to repeat it. You refused to read it the first time, I see no reason to think repeating it will improve the situation.

    It's the same way of adoption as it is done with webkit. Now let me try to apply your logic: webkit is not free software, because otherwise Digia would not have merged it into Qt. Gnome heavily integrates with webkit-gtk, which also incorporates webkit (that apple crap, you know). Now you also can say, that gnome uses f** non-free software. Agreed?

    And if you know so much about phonons history, you also should know that phonon actually was developed by kde developers to get away with relying on one solution for audio (just remember arts). As it turned out to be quite good Qt decided to make it available for everyone using qt and bundled it. They merged kdes phonon from time to time to stay up2date.

    Maybe we let Honton himself answer this question:

    So LGPL is a non-free license now? Just get over it, you outed yourself officially as a mindless troll.

    Fixed that for you.
