Note about GNU policy: support for proprietary (commercial or not) kernels is a compromise. It's to be decided on a case by case basis whether supporting it serves the goal for user freedom or not.

As for open-source kernels, they fall outside of this criteria only if they are also free software.

In any case, we'd like as many kernels are possible to use Multiboot.

This is somewhat eternal todo. IMO opinion only widespread commercial OS are to be considered. Supporting not widespread commercial OS is against GNU policy. Supporting open-source OS is also ok but it's better to push them to use multiboot
