Quantix uses the BSD license. The BSD license is a

Allow Commercial Development?
The open source
community is divided into several
different legal categories. Approximately two thirds of it
believes in the GNU General Public License concept. The GNU
as it is called, restricts the ability of commercial use of the
software, requiring that the same license, the GPL, be used on all derivative
works. While this may have good intentions, it's simply not
practical for commercial developers to make their source code publicly
available. The Quantix developers believe that commercial
development is a healthy use of the software created as long as credit
is given to the developers. That is why the BSD license was
chosen for this project.
