Is anyone using MOSIX2?

I'm still running openMosix on our Beowulf cluster - We planned to 
migrate (pun intended!) to Kerrighed but, although it looks very 
promising, it is still too fragile for a production cluster. If one node 
crashes the entire cluster goes down...

I ruled out MOSIX2 as an alternative at first, because it is not FLOSS. 
However, it is open source and free for non-commercial use. I'd be very 
interested to hear from anyone who is using MOSIX2 on a production 
cluster or just evaluating it as I am about to do.
