The problem with opensourcing BeOS is that some parts were under NDA from both licensing and ownership proprietarity and releasing BeOS as open source in somewhat usable bits and pieces at that time did not make sense as Palm.inc had plans to use some of those parts and the Be engineers in their future proprietary projects and needed to stay clear of legaleese issues.

There was a good article here on osnews recently that party touched the issue.
