excerpt from OpenDOS 7.0.1 license.txt:

Caldera grants you a non-exclusive license to use the Software in
source or binary form free of charge if

(a) you are a student, faculty member or staff member {...}

(b) your use of the Software is for the purpose of evaluating
whether to purchase an ongoing license to the Software. The evaluation
period for use by or on behalf of a commercial entity is limited
to 90 days; evaluation use by others is not subject to this 90 day
limit but is still limited to a reasonable period.

That's not something I would call "free", not even for "private use" ... unless you are a student.

MS-DOS forever!
