The client itself could be open source, you just won't be able to
compile it yourself if you don't have a license for qt.

Look at it from this point of view:
  1.) you write a free (open source, whatever) GUI for un*x systems, using
  2.) you get a license for windows platform, and voila, you can
  distribute the _same_ GUI client for windows as well. The folks who
  already have a license for qt/windows can of course download the
  source and build the beast themselves.

Besides, how much is VB more open-source then this? Personally, I don't
have any MS devel environments installed...
