Intalio - Not Open Source?

I have to agree with this posting:
http://blogs.jboss.com/blog/tbaeyens/2006/11/29/What_is_open_source_Intalio_sure_is_NOT.txt

I was excited about Intalio's offering until I hit the "community license" page:
http://bpms.intalio.com/intalio-bpms-community-edition-license.html

Which is *not* an Open Source license... What's up with that?!

We actually have three levels for our product:

Enterprise Edition - a yearly subscription with access to 100% of the source code.

Community Edition - free to use, but customers receive binaries only. Users get approximately 90% of the code base of the Enterprise Edition.

This version is also 80% Open Source.

Open Source Edition - all of which is donated to Apache Software Foundation and Eclipse Foundation. This makes up 80% of the code base of our Enterprise Edition.

This is what we call the COSMO (Commercial Open Source) Model.
We will be updating the website soon to clarify.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Jonathan
