I just read a statement early in our book - "Python is an Open Source tool, ...".
Is this "near enough"? Should I avoid this term in preference for something more generic (ie, even simply dropping the caps?) - but the OS(tm) idea seems doomed anyway...
It's not certified Open Source, but my understanding is that ESR believes the Python license would qualify if GvR applied for certification.
BTW, you won't be able to avoid flames about something or other, and given that you're writing a Win32 book, you'll be flamed by both pseudo-ESRs and pseudo-RMSs, all Anonymous Cowards. =)
