And the point with that is?

The goal of open source software makers is to make code that other can look at, learn from, contribute to. If the SkyOS devs learn from OSS projects... Then that's all good. A decent amount of OSS programs have already been ported, one of the most recent big ones is SAMBA, and SAMBA was very happy with this-- they even announced the SkyOS port on the Samba website:

http://us1.samba.org/samba/news/developers/#skyos_port

That's the difference that you are seeing between most OSS Devs and their users: The Devs are happy that their project runs on yet another platform (open OR closed) and the users always whine about "They r using open-source, they should die!!!11!!" and what not.
