You really are.

Yes, really.

You have a choice: either open it or fail with it.

You may try, but that wouldn't work.

pl> or do I need to focus on the nicer licensed FreeBSD or similar?

Who cares of licenses? Once it is out, it will be reversed and a hmmm...
compatible software would fire up in a month. Or two.

pl> I want to SELL a product and need a *nix OS. What OS would you use?

That doesn't work anymore. However, you still can offer a donation-backed
support for adding the new features...

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
