It'a getting difficult to draw a line between the user-space apps and the 
root-space os. Using "open source" (I prefer the term free) on non-free 
platforms is one way to promote freedom for users, but it's far from 
enough. The first words on the Piksel web site are:
"Piksel is a yearly event for artists and developers working 
 with Free Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) for realtime processing of 
video and sound."  Since Windows and OSX are non-free softwares, the Piksel 
people should logically be extreme extremists... ;-)
