I think I made a mistake. hmm... Since Xteamlinux did not provide
download for their binaries(I cannot find download at their site),
they have no obligation to provide source codes to anyone who did not
buy binaries from them. They cannot stop others to redistribute
xteamlinux but they should not responsible for providing source code
to users who get binaries from redistributors.
