This is true for all GPL versions. Cygwin's license is GPL with an
exception to allow any Open Source product to not be infected but that
is the limit. You cannot create proprietary software without paying
Redhat for that privilege; they do offer an alternative license. See
http://cygwin.com/licensing.html for details.
