NetKernel Enterprise Edition

Share the value
NetKernel® Standard Edition is the Open Source edition. The source code of every part of NetKernel is shipped with each library/module allowing you to inspect, debug and extend.
We publish NetKernel with a liberal open source license. Since NetKernel is an entirely modular platform, we had to write our own public license to meet our very specific intentions: we want you to be free to choose your own open source license for your own modules and not, as is often the case, have that choice imposed by the platform from below.
The overriding objective of NetKernel's 1060 Public License is that everyone should be able to share in the value of open-use of NetKernel's ROC abstraction. So the license requests that the modules you develop and deploy on NetKernel Standard Edition are OSI licensed and made publicly available with their sources so that everyone can reap the benefit.
Please read the 1060 Public License carefully.
