That's an incorrect usage of the open source term. I quote the Open Source
Definition ( ):

"1. Free Redistribution

The license shall not restrict any party from selling or giving away the
software as a component of an aggregate software distribution containing
programs from several different sources.


6. No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor

The license must not restrict anyone from making use of the program in a
specific field of endeavor. For example, it may not restrict the program from
being used in a business, or from being used for genetic research."

The tools sound interesting, but I just wanted to point out that the license
to InlineEgg is not an open source license. You can read more about this at .
