As far as my search engineering [0] reaches for now, EdgeOS is
a derivarive [1] of Vyatta [2], which is a derivative [3] of...

Since already Vyatta was an "open cores" model [4], and in the
meantime companies have been bought and sold, I can well imagine
that the Commons have been trampled on in the usual way.


[0] Another term for "I don't know what I'm doing and will fall
   for the next low-hanging fake news".

[2] https://wiki.vyos.net/wiki/Vyatta
[3] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vyatta
[4] Sometimes, open core models work and are respectful of the
   "core". Most of the time, they don't.
