Linux "It's always an interesting day when you get to write a kernel patch, at the urging of Andrew Morton, that notifies the world that non-GPL Linux kernel modules will not work after January 2008 and write some poetry all in the same message." More here. Hopefully, many closed-source drivers will be opened during the next year if this patch goes through. Update: Linus responds.

Linux has a different position and doesn't have to beg for driver specs.There're are numerous big companies who have a interest in linux and in fact use it on day to day basis.
