Red Hat "We see the desktop as only a piece of the entire operating system product; integration must extend beyond the desktop. We also believe that users care most about functionality and integration rather than the underlying technology. For these reasons, we have created a single desktop look and feel for Red Hat Linux rather than maintaining two unrelated configurations." Very good stuff over there from Owen Taylor, the Red Hat Desktop Team member.

Andrew: I was under the impression that with the BSD license your work code be taken, modified, and released closed source. Is that true? If so it doesn't really seem in the spirit of the general Open Source Community.

Suggested reading:

Open Source isn't Free Software. Free Software is from RMS/FSF. Open Source spirit is when a software is developed openly using a license approved by the OSI, and the source code being freely available. Free Software is where the source code would always be present in any deviration work, in a manner where forks could happen.
