GNU, GPL, Open Source More often than not, the question arises on OSNews why certain projects or pieces of abandonware aren't released as open source software. Supposedly, this would speed up development, facilitate the growth of a community, all that jazz associated with open source development. Here are four projects I'd like to see released under a MIT license.

I'd toss in a vote for OS/2. It's one of those Operating Systems that "holds a special place in my heart" due to the superiority of the technology under OS/2 compared to MS-DOS and MS Windows 3.x/9x.

If you don't happen to know much about OS/2, you should read a bit of history about the Operating System. It's quite interesting. http://pages.prodigy.net/michaln/history
