Use a free toolkit to develop a sofeware , it doesn't mean my product is
free or GPL,isn't it?
I suggest you to search in www.gnu.org first.
If you use a GPL library, you have to put under the GPL license all the
programs you made whit it, othewise, your program will be illegal.
But if you use a LGPL (Lesser GPL) library, you can make your program
proprietary. I don't remember if the GKT is under the GPL or LGPL, look
GTK+ is under the LGPL; use in proprietary applications is certainly
for a short common-sense summary of the LGPL.
