The OS Project & Licensing

The OS Project uses the GNU General Public License version 2 and later for its software. It is available at The Free Software Foundation, and on our website locally.

We support the Open Source movement, and other valid Open Source licenses may be found at the Open Source Initiative, a group that approves Open Source Licenses by making sure they conform to the Open Source Definition.

At this time, the GNU GPL satisfies our needs, so please do not try to convince us that we need to use another license. Should licensing become an issue, we will follow the same practices that the Linux Kernel community follows. Thereby, even if you do not use the GNU GPL license, you may interact with the kernel. We do, however, reserve the right to limit what parts of the kernel you may access if you do not use an open source license.
