SvarDOS is a DOS distribution made of many different software bricks, hence a
single license can hardly be applied to all. However, the CORE system (that is
the SvarDOS installer, bootable images and all CORE packages) is carefully
assembled from software that is "free" (as in "Freedom"), ie. that grants the
3 basic FOSS liberties: freedom to use, modify, and redistribute. This
includes, but is not necessarily limited to, software released under following
licenses: GNU GPLv2, GNU GPLv3, BSD, MIT, EUPL and Public domain.
Note that, while the above applies to the core of the SvarDOS distribution, it
does not cover all extra packages. Additional software packages may or may not
be FOSS, they are only guaranteed to be "gratis for non-commercial use".
