GNU, GPL, Open Source Google has finally acknowledged that its characterization of Android as open source is false and, in the end, this can only make the mobile platform stronger, InfoWorld's Galen Gruman argues. 'It's hard for believers to accept that open source brings with it difficulties, but look at the consistent failure of the other open source mobile platforms -- Moblin, Maemo, and MeeGo -- that all devolved into grad-student-like thought experiments and personal pet projects. Users don't want that, and ultimately products are sold to users.' Instead, Google has been quietly taking parts of Android back in house to develop them purposefully and deeply, and as Google has asserted more control over Android, it's improved.

GBPS+ traffic as well as the rest on 10 year old hardware ... oh comon!!

Easy! 10 y/o hardware is already fast enough to handle those loads. 10 years ago Pentium4's came onto the market. Cheezy 300mhz embedded low-power CPU's can handle 100mbits. 10 GB will not be hard for them.
I use my 7 y/o machine as a test Java app server with no issues, including performance testing.
