Also the non-compete clause only applies to the FREE use of bitkeeper, if you pay for a licence this doesn't apply to you at all (although if you purchase a licence and then write a program that works very like bitkeeper you can probably expect a lawsuit about copying it's look-and-feel)
In addition Larry has stated that he has already issued some waivers to kernel developers who work for companies that develop SCM systems to allow them to continue useing bitkeeper for kernel development.
