Mosix vs. openMosix

what's the difference between mosix and openmosix(if there is one)? I'm looking into building a cluster and I am wondering what the difference is?

According to the website, mosix is a previously open source (now proprietary) project that allows inter-node process migration, load-balancing, resource-sharing, etc.--essentially it allows for the creation of a networked, giant multi-CPU computer on which applications can run transparently. OpenMosix does the same things, and supposidly is better at them, and is (as implied by the name), open source.
