Google It was inevitable, of course, and rightfully so: Google is having its big I/O conference, so we have to talk about the lack of Honeycomb's source code. While not violating any licenses, the lack of source code doesn't sit well with many - including myself - so it only makes sense people are asking Google about it. Andy Rubin confirmed we're never going to see Honeycomb's sources as a standalone release. He also explained what 'open' means for Android.

Well, that's an odd argument. I mean, isn't the fact that Google is using a *different* approach using *existing* open source code the whole *point* behind open source?


I wasn't making any philosophical argument about open source in general - just saying, in very concrete terms, why I don't like Android.
