The news we all were waiting for! At last MTOS is released. There is no stable build yet, but nightly builds can be downloaded. Also, code is available via SVN.

Quotes, deserving special focus:

MTOS has every feature in Movable Type 4.0 along with several new minor improvements and bug fixes.
We'll be adding additional paid benefits for people who've paid for commercial licenses for Movable Type, with benefits like improved technical support and custom add-ons such as plugins or themes.
This explains difference between open source and commercial versions.

One thing I'm especially hope for is new styles and themes. Now we can expect improvement in that area, both from community enthusiasts and also from Six Apart.
