Acronym: Gimp Toolkit

GTK stands for The Gimp Toolkit, but it has branched out from it’s original application (The GIMP).

GTK+ is now a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces. Offering a complete set of widgets, GTK+ is suitable for projects ranging from small one-off projects to complete application suites.

GTK+ is free software and part of the GNU Project. However, the licensing terms for GTK+, the GNU LGPL, allow it to be used by all developers, including those developing proprietary software, without any license fees or royalties.
