What do you mean by "commercial usage"? If you intend to disallow
anyone from using the software in a "commercial" environment (e.g. using
it to make money somehow), that's certainly non-free by Debian's
standards. On the other hand, if you only intend to prevent the code
from being incorporated into a closed-source product, that would be OK
by Debian's standards, but you'd have to make that intention far more
clear in the license.
Society is never going to make any progress until we all learn to
pretend to like each other.
