1) What legal problems a person can have if you take the code for any commercial application cosmos?

I mean that copyright and will not comment on its implementation

2) What folder should I use? Source? or Source2?

Its Free BSD license, one of the easiest licenses to comply with.

Cosmos uses both right now.

Yes. The FreeBDS is one of the most permissive licenses available. You
can do anything, including sell your work so long as you give credit to
the original authors as stated in the license.

You cannot remove the copyright, and you must give credit to the Cosmos
team in any derivative works. Such as "portions of this software
developed by the Cosmos team" etc.. in docs, about box, etc...

SharpOS I believe is no longer being developed.... but I may be wrong.

ndavila - you want to sell you Cosmos operating system?  As far as I know, you can use Cosmos to the extent of the BSD license (do anything as long as you include the Cosmos copyright message).  For example, on my OS, in the docs, it has the Cosmos copyright line under the legal section.  I don't know if you are able to sell it, but it has been discussed several times previously.  But as far as I know, Cosmos is in no way ready for a commercial, paid for operating system.

I think it was folded into the MOSA project - which hasn't been very active lately.
