steelpillow: ROOL themselves freely admit it's very different to the open source licence KDE is under. The main, most obvious example being that any hardware manufacturer could put together a box with a completely open source software stack (from BIOS to office suite) and sell said hardware.

This isn't possible with ROOL's shared source licence (even assuming that eventually enough components are released to build a completely working system without any dependence on an existing underlying RISC OS)
