GNU, GPL, Open Source Tim Butler knew when he mentioned something negative about the GNU Project's General Public License (GPL), in his column on KDE last week, he would inevitably be accused of arguing the GPL was a bad license. What did not fit into that piece shall now be dealt with: is the GPL a bad license or is the issue he complained about something else?

For commercial applications it is beholden to Trolltech. You cannot write a proprietary application using QT without buying a license from Trolltech. This is not so with Gnome/GTK+. That is what he is talking about. Whether this is good or bad depends on the views of the user/developer.
