Um, there are obvious ways to tell.  XFree86 is, among other things, a
major player in the free software community.  Transgaming is, by stark
contrast, one of the more leaching sorts of software hoarders.

And the reason given in your second question is another excellent
one.  XFree86 has a license that reflects its actual expectations,
whereas Transgaming apparently has a license which is a sham.
