PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Samsung's recent Android 4.1.2 upgrade for the Galaxy Note 10.1 adds power and flexibility to the company's unique offering of Android multiwindowing features. With this update, the Galaxy Note 10.1 can run up to 16 multiwindow-enabled Android apps at once, Windows/Mac-like, on a single screen. Apps endowed with Samsung's multiwindow technology are usable in three viewing modes: full screen, dual view, and cascade view." There are already some complaining this represents a dangerous fork of Android. I thinks it's a step in the right direction.

Not really. Eg Chrome/WebKit is LGPL.

Chrome is not a part of Android platform. It's an optional Google app. IIUC, anyone can write and distribute GPL and LGPL apps via Play store.

So, what would be the advantages to not opensource?

Ask on Apple forum :-)
