QNX As of April 2010, a silent change was made on Foundry27, users with a myQNX account could no longer checkout/update their copies of the QNX SVN repositories and a vague Wiki page was created "detailing" some licencing clarifications.

The problem is that making it specifically incompatible with GPL they also closed the door to easy drivers port, and that bites big back as drivers are really a hard part to develop as the multitude of hardware to support keeps growing and, besides Microsoft and the Linux community, no other project seems to be able to keep up with the current pace. If Sun wanted to really make OpenSolaris popular, their decision about its license would be considered a mistake.

Strange.. Last time I checked, NetBSD was the most portable OS and supported the largest range of hardware.
