Yes, this is great news and should greatly accelerate the use of Qt, 
both on desktop and embedded platforms now that the cost of Qt for most 
people will be zero even for developing commercial applications.

At ICS, as Qt Software's largest consulting partner we are very excited 
about the new opportunities this will bring.

We have a whitepaper on our web site at http://www.ics.com/ that talks 
about the implications of Qt being available under the LGPL.
