But my biggest concern is what happens to the project when Robert gets bored. He's certainly allowed to license it as he sees fit, but if he ever gets tired of working on the project or, for whatever reason, is unable to continue working on it, there goes any investment users have put into SkyOS.


Agreed. Even if he WERE to open source it right before he gets bored or quits, he'd be the only one intimate enough with the code to understand it. This really is a valid concern, even though it gets dismissed by SkyOS people all the time.
