Yep! But many of the corporates still labor under QT license fears IMHO.
They often take a couple of years to catch up on these sorts of things - in
comparison to the devs that usually find out the news in no more than a month
or two. This is why I think they still prefer GNOME - because they haven't
gotten the news that the QT question is mute now. I could be wrong but
having worked around the suits in healthcare - I can assure that (at least in
my experience) those in the technical fields are generally light years ahead
of changes in their respective fields than the business focused propeller
heads are at any given moment (no bias here - ;) ).

Cheers, Curtis.
