Do we really want to repeat UNIX history THIS MUCH ?

This is very serious trend lately: a lot of distributions with bunch of proprietary stuff at core. First Xandros, now Athene and so on. This is first stap on "UNIX way". Rememeber ? Only SunOS can... AIX is the only... IRIX is the one... Remember what the end result was ? Comfused customers stuck with Windows...
Do we really need to repeat this ?
P.S. Now you can understood why I really hope they will not succeed. SuSE (now - after YaST is GPLed) if barely on the side of good... But this... Plain and simple: Athene, Xandros and so success is bad for free software.
