Oops... it looks like OSI smoked something especially bad this time,
I'm afraid. This license looks like someone took his time to collect

Debian-legal may provide you with a clause-by-clause analysis, but

software (thus not "Personal Use"), you need to make the source of
openwatcom publicly available for 12 months.
