I use TeXLive on Linux and teTeX in OS/2. My problem in OS/2 is that
important packages are missing and I have to take them from somewhere else
(usually I get the corresponding zip file from the TL DVD, fortunatelly
the directory structure is very similar). On the other hand, I may be a
special kind of user.

I believe so. I just remind e-mails in this list from the last half year.
TL as well as other sources contain fonts that are believed to be free but
it was not sure. Developers of TL work hard to find the official message
stating that the fonts are free etc. You can find about the policy just by
reviewing the archive of the texlive list.
