True it might be very efficient, but it supports no new hardware -only Efika and Pegasos I/II, which is a big minus IMHO. Also, the worst point is the price. 150e for a CLOSED source OS is ridiculously high, I'm sorry. I'd have no problem paying this kind of money, but staying in a development/business model that is stuck in the 90s is wrong. They don't have to adopt the GPL, there are plenty of other licenses that protect IP and are open source. I might be intrigued to try the OS myself, since it's supposed to be very efficient, but I'll refrain from doing that. It's not the price, but I refuse to work in a closed OS. Same reason I don't use Windows and MacOS X (which is cheaper btw).
Sorry, if I'm spoiling the fun for the rest, but I think it's still missing the point that's been proven numerous times in the industry: "if it ain't open it will fail".
