wrong Qt works also on non X systems as linux frame buffer, OS X, Win32 and no 
GUI at all.

wrong Qt is triple licensed. It is fine to create LGPL or BSD code with the 
free (as in beer) version of Qt.

I use Qt reqularily in non GUI network servers like xml-rpc servers due to its 
superiour and reliable network and container classes.
