Of course there's still the next to 0 possibility, that he actually didn't know about all the other free toolkits which are 100 % free-of-cost, open source and industrial-strength (whatever that means exactly). But even that would not reflect too well on him. Especially since one shouldn't make such absolute statements if one has never even a single look outside his own project.

If that is true, then he's simply of the passive-agressive kind. If it's not, then he's a little bit too pretentious and self-contempt. He clearly cannot plead ignorance here. In any case, it only makes him (and GTK+ by extension) look bad.
