Now lets have an mind experiment: remove freetype from skyos - we get ugly fonts.


Oh noes. Sometimes a serif font might have a funny thing poking down. Surely, this calls for the injection of copyleft cruft.

Remove gecko - you make this os useles for like 90% of computer users.


Gecko was only added this release -- and removing cruft like Gecko will not disable legit software like SkyKruiser.

No binuils - no bash - have anyone used default shell on solaris?


If you need to use a text shell to do any task in an OS, then you have failed in your design.

Remove openbfs - and you have to design a filesystem
