Yikes. Even I wasn't stupid enough to develop an OS with no money. Look how bad that went. Disaster. At least people got paid for work that failed.

The more and more I'm reading this topic the more I'm drifting off to sleep.

For Cairo shell without our code, that would still be their decision.

For our code, redistribution for intent of commercialism just will not happen. It's free, and will stay that way.

I would suggest you take a very hard look at the GPL and the relevant statements released by the FSF and the GPL drafters. A codebase released under the GPL does not forbid the selling or reselling of the product/codebase. Irregardless of what your intentions were, you released it under the GPL. You cannot stop others from selling that so long as they adhere to the terms of the GPL. And the non-comercial stance you are talking actually directly contradicts GPL conditions, meaning you now have a legal mismash. The GPL was not intended or designed to protect against commercial exploitation of a codebase. You would need to add on additional requirements to your source code usage to try to prevent it, and I am not sure you can without effectively violating the rights the GPL tries to guarantee for the downstream users of your code.

@Z98- what does it mean, to protect it from the commercial, but If i sold it, i might give the source code to apple who doesn't have the GUI experience.

It means that if you use Cairo Shell as basis, you have to release the open source code of your shell for free. As Cairo Shell is GPL you have to release your shell under GPL terms.Any code that is based in a GPL code has to be released for free.
Of course you can shell Cairo Shell or any other project (as GPL doesnt stop you to do so) but you have to release your Jupiter Shell code for free if anyone asks you.
If you dont release your modifications or provide on demand the source code of any part of your new OS which is based in a previous GPL code you will be prosecuted because violating the GPL licenses.

And patternjake, your code is GPL, so it means anyone can take it and sell it. Being Open and Free doesn't mean that you can not try to sell it (of course you have to keep a free way to obtain it):
You can buy Ubuntu CDs from Canonical (it would be a nice supporting action) but you can of course download it for free.People buy Ubuntu's cds because it helps to support the Ubuntu idea.

No.

I am known for despising Apple, but even for me this statement is so untrue. General ROFL

Boys, can't we just lock this thread? It leads nowhere, and the guy doesn't even understand what you're trying to tell him. I must admit that I don't have a clue of what he's trying to do. "putting ubuntu on top of BS OS on top of ReactOS".

Putting some weed on top of LSD on top of cocaine? Yeah man, that's good!

Now, it would be great if that topic was closed. We won't waste every two months our time explaining a teenager what licences are, what an OS is each time some comes with the brillant (and amazing) idea of selling ReactOS.

Now, dear "Kyuuqsoft", some advices:
-> Grow up
-> Speak about what you understand. Or learn before having brillant ideas
-> Grow up
-> I'm not interrested in your offer, unless you give me exchange rate between euros and "KEPTs"
-> Grow up
-> Read carefully those advice, there's a message hidden in
-> Grow up

This is getting beyond ridiculous. Topic locked. Kyuuqsoft, I am going to have to ask you to not try and promote your project on this forum. Everyone else, drop the topic and move on.
