I didn't mean PyQt in a whole but only PyQt for windows. I guess that without
TheKompany, you wouldn't have got a Qt windows license that allow people to
distribute programs that uses Qt under windows and unix without paying a
single fee to TrollTech. I was surprised that TT had allowed such a thing
because it breaks their business model. It makes more sense now.

And the license cost significantely less than a windows Qt license (or that a
Qt dual license).
Anyway, congratulation to you and TheKompany for this. I hope TheKompany will
get so much income with this good product that they will manage to get plenty
of other Free software ready for us. :-)
