Fixed the project description and more.

I'm sorry about that last project description for Gebix: making a bigger operating system out of a core operating system is never easy for non-programmers to do, so I've changed it to make it much more accurate, and making Gebix easy for programmers to make distributions of is my goal. Now, on to what's to come for the next Gebix release.

First thing, a dual-licensing model. The next Gebix release will give users the option to use and modify Gebix under the GNU LGPLv2.1 or the Apache License v2 so that both corporations and the open source community will have much less to worry about. The second thing I'd like to announce for newer releases is a command line shell to be built right into the kernel itself, so that it can be used in case of an emergency or as a pre-development environment for OS distribution development. Of course, that doesn't mean that the shell will be very complete starting next release, but at least a built-in shell that can actually do something is a good start!
