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?

Article quote: "Next week, after casting some doubt on KDE the past two weeks, Iíll explain why I am not the GNOME user I have been presumed to be."

I don't believe the author was intending to attack the KDE community or Trolltech specifically. Though he could of done a better job writing the article by explaining what distributions, developers and companies like the QT license. When I compare the applications written for KDE vs Gnome there appears far more available for KDE users and in some cases better applications (ie: Amarok). Not every Linux developer can afford the QT license but there are a lot that can and do opt for QT over GTK.
