I'm sure Heather will answer but I'll have a go. Dual licensing models require you to distribute under the terms of the GPL or if you have a commercial license under those terms. You can still work professionally and distribute your code under the GPL however if you want to distribute under your own license and closed source then you will need a commercial license. 

One of the fantastic things is that now LiveCode Server will be free to use for 99.9% of it's use.

Then it wouldn't be the GPL would it???
