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.

A few complaints directed at Android have been that it is using a different method for handling 'handoffs' (wakelock), and it's rumoured with 3.1 to have a different USB driver stack to Linux.


I'm pretty sure it's the same story as with the scheduler - one size fits all is not always the best approach. And you know that if Linus will not think it's right it'll never get in to the mainline.
