According to the press release, the only restriction would be patent claims.
 They even go as far as to say they won't sue over those for non-commercial use.

Some of the docs now actually list the relevant patents, which helps.

I'll know more soon, but here's an article from The Reg:

They gave me a T-shirt that says "Reports of snowballs in hell" on the back.
(No, really.)

Probably worth asking 'round on the Samba-Tech list.  Lots of FOSS and
commercial developers are wondering the same things but there's been very
little (other than Slashdot) public discussion.  At least, I haven't seen
all that much.
