PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There are various trains of thought regarding Apple suing HTC, and one of them is that Apple feels threatened by Android's rise in popularity. Some laughed this away, but when you look at recent statistics regarding mobile web usage, it becomes pretty clear Apple has every reason to feel threatened by Google's mobile operating system.

Let's just hope that they stay as open as they are: the other important point here is that openness was once Microsoft's strategy too and look what happened. That said, I don't know what you can do to mess up GPL'ed code. Slapping that GPL on is kind of an all in.

Openness does not equal success, it is only one factor. Linux (can you get more open) is still at 1% market share after many many years.

Anyway, i also hope WebOS succeeds even if does not dominate.

You cannot compare iPhone with Linux.

Linux is easy for geeks & nerds but extremely hard for IT illiterate mass ;-p
