Are there UI alternatives to Qt in linux?


What equal alternatives can someone found to Qt4 in linux?

Are they the same good or even better? Or Qt is the top?

There is no "top" really. GTK2 is extremely popular, but in the main the toolkit is heavily integrated into the desktop environment being used (when one IS being used). So KDE developers will use QT, Gnome developers will use GTK2, but it's perfectly possible to mix and match if you wish. There is also wxwindows, fltk (both of which are cross platform so work on windows too) and many others, but GTK and QT are definitely the norms.

Is there still a difference in licensing?

Yes. GTK is GPL. Qt is LGPL
