He's saying it's inferior to Qt and QObject.

Don't get me wrong: I like Glib and GObject. I think the F/OSS community 
should be proud of inventing and maintaining it. And I do recommend using Glib 
whenever someone has to write something in C only (no C++). It's much better 
for everyone as a whole that they use Glib instead of rolling out their own 
string, hash, etc. functions.

However, don't ask me to use it. I'll take C++ and Qt any day.
