I don't have the slightest idea what point 2 means:

#  All distribution of this Software and evolved derivations of
# this Software shall embrace the RTX-2000 RTOS Open License to meet
# the current version of the 'Open Source Definition' published by Open
# Source Initiative.

It sounds like all derivatives must be licensed under the same license,
which is virality without copyleft, which makes very little sense.
