Does free in UFO refer to licensing costs or does it really mean "the
source is publicly available"?
Are RHEL and other "pay for it only" versions of Linux disqualified?
Is Solaris 10 (with or without source) included because one can get a
free educational/developers license? There are other OSes like this, or
used to be.
Is VM/370 (mainframe) included because IBM has said they will not pursue
anybody that uses it without a license, and when licenses were
available, the license was free, and it comes with full source?
