RMS approves of the dual license business model. But Trolltech only use that model for *some* (most?) of their software. Some of their software is exclusively proprietary.
Sorry I can't provide the reference, I'm running out the door as I write this. I think he spoke of this in a previous LWN.net interview. In the interview he endorsed both the MySQL and the Trolltech models, but in a follow up he clarified that hadn't known that the trolltech model was different to the MySQL one, and he retracted his endorsement.
