QNX is NOT "Opening" their "source"

QNX is claiming that effective today, they will "open" the "source" code to its QNX embedded product. This is nonsense. What they have done is released "source under glass". You can download the source code, change it, modify it, but you can't sell it. That's not Open Source! Open Source gives you all the freedoms you need to get the Open Source effect. Sure, it's not a knife-edged phenomenon and you can blur the edges a little bit. But QNX is proposing to break the definition in two, creating two classes of QNX Embedded developers -- the non-profit ones, and the for-profit ones. That's not the way to get the best software out of the process.

To promote and protect open source software and communities...

For over 20 years the Open Source Initiative (OSI) has worked to raise awareness and adoption of open source software, and build bridges between open source communities of practice. As a global non-profit, the OSI champions software freedom in society through education, collaboration, and infrastructure, stewarding the Open Source Definition (OSD), and preventing abuse of the ideals and ethos inherent to the open source movement.

Open source software is made by many people and distributed under an OSD-compliant license which grants all the rights to use, study, change, and share the software in modified and unmodified form. Software freedom is essential to enabling community development of open source software.
