In the year 2000, there was a wide outbreak of the QAZ virus/trojan. The trojan leaves allows remote control TCP port 7597. Rumor has it that a Microsoft engineer disklike the performance cost of running anti-virus and disabled it. The engineer then got infected with QAZ. Somebody trolling on the Internet found the open port, remotely controlled the machine, and used it to log back into Microsoft and was able to steal some source code. From Hacking-Lexicon

A powerful, fast open source graphics library for the X Window System on UNIX/Linux, which is used by programmers to create buttons, menus, and other graphical objects. (Also, see Gtk/Gtk+ and KDE.) From I-gloss


At about that time, a new GUI library was released. It was called Qt and was developed by Troll Tech. It was not free, but it was an outstanding technical accomplishment in that it worked efficiently and cleanly on many different platforms. It was shunned by some factions of the Free software community because it was written in C++, [Which is not considered to be the standard development language by the Free Software Foundation because it is not completely portable and possibly for other reasons.]and was only free for noncommercial applications to link with. Nevertheless, advocates of Qt went ahead and began producing the outstanding KDE desktop project--a set of higher-level development libraries, a window manager, and many core applications that together make up the KDE Desktop. The licensing issues with Qt have relaxed somewhat, and it is now available under both the GPL and a proprietary license. From Rute-Users-Guide
