You can definitely do that, but... I'll just let the number speak for themselves,

btw. this is excluding the kernel code for NetBSD, FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris, Windows9x, and WindowsNT/2000/XP. But if you bring the 18 other programmers and the 6 million, and don't mind the code being released under a GPL license, I guess we might be able to arrange something ;)
