Sorry, I didn't knew this was such a hot issue. Personally I couldn't care less which license an OS uses. After all were all free to choose if we use it or not.

Anyhow I was just amazed it was closed source from a commercial perspective.If you look at tons of examples in the past imo this isn't a viable business alternative for a niche market OS (BeOS, Zeta anyone?).
