Linux Well, this is fascinating. ASUS hasn't even released its Eee Pad Transformer yet, but it's already put up for download the source code to the Linux kernel used in the Android Honeycomb operating system the machine runs. In other words, Google isn't withholding anything it is not allowed to withhold. As said by many - storm, teacup, meet. Go here, select download, select Android.

But isn't the Android 3.0 kernel source located on the Google Android git repository.

pretty much:

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

You can see plenty of recent checkins, including a "honeycomb" tag on the tegra tree:

http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=kernel/tegra.git;a=shortlog;h=refs...

So I'm guessing all the honeycomb kernel sources are there, but perhaps not well labeled.

Which is an interesting point, given the wording of the GPL with respect to "the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it".

Assuming releases are clearly tagged, a git repository is certainly a more desirable form than a mere tarball release.
