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.

From the non-marketing and more pragmatical perspective my comments are:

- Google, open source the Android 3.0 stinky code, otherwise you will loose reputation.

- Fanbois are under Steve Jobs reality distortion field and it is impossible to reason with them. There is no point on arguing with hypnotized people.

- Thom, keep bitch-slapping that fanbois.
