The OSL requires you to get click-wrap acceptance of the license from
anyone you distribute the software to. It makes automated mirroring of
OSL-licensed software impossible, destroying an important bit of free
software distribution infrastructure.
(If I recall correctly, the Debian project had a different reason for
considering it non-free, but that's my major complaint with it.)
