But all of those new LGPL users were *NOT* paying to
use Qt (except for those that bought support contracts).
An enormous-but-non-paying user base still supports
my argument that going FOSS decreases the commercial
value of a software property.

Adding LGPL as a license option had an enormous impact on the commercial business but it also grew the number of users by an order of magnitude over the same time period.
