No, it couldn't. Because then $ENTITY_YOU_HATE could buy the distro and use
it that way.

well, I don't see why not.  Can you be more specific?  Seems to me like
all kinds of restrictions could be made.

so, default is to disallow all commercial distrobution and use.  and
perhaps like the QT license, you make special provisions for commercial
ventures (provided that they pay or contribute a significant amount of
GPL or similar floss code). 

What you're talking about could not be included in any Linux distro. 

it certainly could.

the proprietary stuff that sometimes gets included is free for
binary-only commercial use, usually.


afaict, almost all distrobutions of linux include various kinds of
licenses.  no reason why lics couldn't be mixed in a distro.
