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.

No open development means crippled open source. But I'd even say that open development is really a necessity, not a luxury, for the project which claims to be open source.

And of course Thom is going to find this to be all ok - this is Google, purveyor of all that is good, wholesome and right in the world...


You're banned forever from now on. This is clearly wrong as anyone who ACTUALLY READ THE GODDAMN 435743965 ARTICLES I HAVE WRITTEN ON THIS SUBJECT WOULD KNOW. I'm SO sick of your continuous and clearly wrong accusations about me.
