Of Open Source Version and Free Site Licenses for Popular Software GUI

Application Framework

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to growing
 interest worldwide, Trolltech is expanding its "Qt University" education
 program. Qt is Trolltech's flagship product -- a fully object-oriented, C++
 GUI application framework that has everything the software developer needs to
 quickly and easily create and maintain professional-looking GUI applications.
 Many computer science departments are already taking advantage of the well-
 known open source version of Qt for Unix. Through Trolltech's Education
 Program, those who wish to teach Qt in a Windows(R)-based environment can
 receive a free site license for Qt/Windows(R). This opportunity removes a
 significant cost burden from today's cash-strapped universities. Computer
 science educators are also finding that Qt's cross-platform applicability is
 extremely useful for preparing students for a job market that is sure to
 consist of many different platforms.
     "Qt has already been selected as a teaching tool by more than one hundred
 university computer science departments in over 25 different countries," said
 Haavard Nord, CEO of Trolltech. "We have received some very positive feedback
 on how Qt is being incorporated into both graduate and undergraduate
 coursework, in support of both Unix- and Windows-based applications. Of course
 it's gratifying to see Qt being taught in big institutions like Stanford and
 the University of Tokyo, but we've also had correspondence from as far afield
 as the Tibetan Buddhist Cultural Society - a group that is currently
 developing a Tibetan text viewer. It's extremely rewarding for us to support
 this universal educational process, and we want to expand our outreach to any
 college or university that is interested in using Qt for teaching or
 research."
     Qt has been on the market since 1995, and has been used by leading
 companies such as HP, IBM, Intel, Siemens and Ericsson. Widely used on Linux,
 Qt is the basis for the popular KDE desktop environment included in every
 Linux distribution. Qt's superior online documentation is heavily
 cross-referenced and available in various formats, accessible from Trolltech's
 website. Online tutorials are also available to explain Qt programming step by
 step.
 
     About Trolltech
     Trolltech develops, supports, and markets Qt, a C++ cross-platform toolkit
 and windowing system. Qt and Qt/Embedded let programmers rapidly build state-
 of-the-art GUI applications for desktop and embedded environments using a
 "write once, compile anywhere" strategy. Qt has been used to develop hundreds
 of successful commercial applications worldwide, and is the basis of the K
 Desktop Environment (KDE). Trolltech is headquartered in Oslo, Norway, with
 offices in Santa Clara, California, and Brisbane, Australia. More information
