QT License to be changed from GPL to LGPL

As mentioned all over the internet, including here, QT (formerly owned by Trolltech and now owned by Nokia) is about to be relicensed as LGPL (lesser GPL).

This is good for many reasons, the main being that it brings it into line with the GTK, making it easier for companies that sell software for a living to still sell there software, while using QT without having to GPL their own code.

Worth noting as well, QT is the toolkit behind QTopia, yet another (relatively slick, if still junior) mobile platform.
