Phil, you've said many times that you'd like us to move off of NOS
and onto a real operating system.

You could help out by releasing your code under the GPL or at least
a Berkeley-style copyright, so that we could put fragments of it into
Linux or BSD without licensing hassles.

You'd still have the right to issue your own commercial version under a
different license. Are you still getting so many commercial licenses
and embedded systems that this even matters?

You have a history of ignoring e-mail on this subject. If you aren't
going to help change the situation, don't complain about it.
