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.

You are so wrong. Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong.

He cares about losing the whole OS and not being able to depend on it longer. He don't care about the open-source state. Except if it's open-source you can fork it even if the company behinds goes belly up and hence continue using it.

You can fork OpenSolaris. I've already stated this.
Did you just completely ignore my post?


Your GPL hate

Grow up.

I don't hate GPL. Quite the opposite in fact - 90% computers I manage run Linux as the main OS and ArchLinux is my primary desktop OS. I just don't believe that GPL the only licence worth considering. In fact I that kind of attitude is little different to OS fanboyism.

So if I come across as a GPL hater, then that's only because you're so blinkered to other opinions outside of GPL.

ArchLinux
You can, but no-one is likely to give a shit about it.

Get a life.

ArchLinux sucked balls the only time I tried it. Waay overhyped POS. Atleast at that date.

Archlinux is nice. But it lost the KISS distribution personality when it got infested by users who want less package dependencies at the expense of broken dependencies for example when the 'optdependency' thing was introduced.
run ldd on your /usr/bin and /usr/lib/ and you'll find broken binary dependencies which can be fixed by installed 'optdependencies'. This breaks KISS philosophy because it doesn't confirm with how upstream designs applications.
