What my belief is that the Linux license means that anyone who obtains a copy of the Linux Kernel in binary form, irrespective of how they obtained that copy, has a right to the source code used to build that exact Linux kernel binary. Derivative works of the Linux kernel also fall into this category. This right can not be restricted or withheld in any way.
That is the reason why Google HAD to release the source code with the release of G1. :) If they were thinking about the open source community, they would have released it a lot earlier :) - Taran On Tue, Oct 21, 2008 at 1:20 PM, Daniel Benoy <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > On Tuesday 21 October 2008 11:33:40 you wrote: >> Here we are.... >> http://google-opensource.blogspot.com/2008/10/android-open-source-cell-phone.html >> >> time to port to Neo ! >> >> _______________________________________________ >> Openmoko community mailing list >> email@example.com >> http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community >> > > I'm interested to see if it will be possible to hack it so X11 software works > under android, and vice versa so that android software can be run under > X11/illume. ^.^ > > Or if I can't have that or it'd be too slow or something..
