If you don't get any contributions, then making it OS is a waste of time for Carl, and a problem from the point of view of investors and other partners etc. (Well, that's debatable in principle, but it is a fact at this point.) So in the end, there is not much advantage for the community (maybe for small bug fixes, but that would not really scale up, and Carl would still need to check or do all the fixes), and there are only disadvantages for RT. In particular, to protect RT, one would not be able to use something like BSD; the only OS license that i think would protect RT adequately would be the GPL, but half of the world (including Carl) hate it, so it's a no go. In the end, there is really no choice. Regards, Gabriele.
