I thought the lack of permissive licensing was the principal reason given by De Icaza for a lack of ISV support for Desktop Linux, although there was a much more recent blog post that also mentioned backwards-compatibility as well, as I recall (and to which you are probably referring).

Certainly, lots of people still seem to develop against Qt (despite Nokia trying to eliminate the business of supporting and developing it sustainably), and backwards-compatibility has a lot to do with that, alongside a long track-record of support for the technology actually being available.
