Why I choose open source C++ wxWidgets over Qt restrictions

wxWdigsts is TRUE open source with no restrictions. When you look at the Qt to use QtCreator or the framework there is constant mention of legal this and that. I find it not worthy. For those that have never used Qt, realize it is a bastardized version of C++. it can be quite restrictive on what C++ librariesyou want to use. wxWidgets does not offer any of these restrictions it seems. This is the primary reason why I don’t use Qt. It ain’t a popularity content but it is more about sensibility.
