Google Is Android still open now that Google has postponed the source code release of Honeycomb, version 3.0 of the mobile operating system? I've been reading a whole boatload of articles and blog posts on the web claiming Android is no longer open, but it seems like very few people seem to actually understand what 'open' really means when it comes to the GPL and the Apache license. Here's a short primer.

There's more source code available for iOS 4.3 than there is for Android 3.0.

http://android.git.kernel.org/

This was a good article for the most part, ruined only by the "curiously incredibly emotional language" in the footnote. Why was it necessary to address (John) Gruber personally?


He's trying to bait Gruber/Apple users for hits and free publicity, something Dvorak and Enderle have been doing for ages.
