Please re-read the license. The user of the software or any application you develop using the provided software can't be used to make money.

You are also restricted from using the software in any place where a commercial software package exists. Thus, you can't use this system as your main OS; even if you don't use your system for making money.

I.E. If I develop a spread sheet program on the system, I can't sale it. Any one I give it to also can't use it in a business to make money.

The GPL at least allows me to use the software for any purpose.
