I'm not sure about the licensing.
Will Android be a really open Platform forever.

Ok, they have to use GPL for the Kernel but the use a bsd licensed libc.
But a phone Distributor could switch such component, more or less easy
;), at any time.

An the other thing is, assuming Android will be the perfect mobile
platform in the future, there is still the issue to port Android to a
specific Phone.

The first Google Phone, HTC G1, ist only availaible if you buy it whit
a contract, an then its already really tight to google services.
I think if you try to use such a google distributed phone in a free
way with your open Android you are standing without the proper
hardware support, because the drivers will be for sure not be opensource.

By the way the G1, shouldnt work that great at all, at this time and
near future.

I'm guess I'm just worried the whole Android thing pretends just in the
beginning to be opensource until its nessacery for becoming a successor.

 That's probably not right.  You probably want to try allow-hotplug
 ubs0 instead.  auto means to do it at boot time and it may just fail
 if (for some reason) the usb0 interface is not yet created.

I could confirm this.
It doesn't work with auto usb0 with allow-hotplug usb0 it works just
Every time I plug the Freerunner in my debian etch it brings the
interface up.
I use the version from the wiki with a extra freerunner script.

My entry in /etc/network/interfaces:

allow-hotplug usb0
iface usb0 inet static
post-up /etc/network/freerunner start
pre-down /etc/network/freerunner stop

Someone should correct the wiki, should I?
