By no means.  It seems to me a very innovative license: the
software can be used either in proprietary products, or in
free software *which is also gratuit*.  I think it would
require a clause which explicitly allows bundling on CD-ROMs and such,
to avoid running afoul of OSD #1.

Otherwise, it looks Open Source to me.
