PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Only a few more hours until the last of the big three has its big event (Google i/o, after WWDC and Microsoft's Surface and WP8 events). They will most likely announce a Nexus tablet, as well as Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. While many of you are still on Gingerbread with your top-of-the-line phones - let me poke a few eyes out with mikegapinski's Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich port... To the Samsung Wave. Dual-booting Bada 2 and ICS, right here.

All closed source source is the ebilz and they hide stuff from you </sarcasm>

It doesn't have to be closed or open, I want things complete.

Everybody does.
But willing is never enough to have it.
*Someone* have to actually do it happen.

And regarding ICS on a Samsung Wave, so far, the best hope is not the manufacturer - as a naive one would expect - but... yes, an hobby project, which has yet to reach usability state but *still* is the best hope.

And this hope existence is possible *only* because of openness.

Oh, sure, we can goes sidetracks and debate of the interest or not to have ICS on a Samsung Wave, and maybe there is not such such point beyond technical curiosity.
But the facts remains: if there is one, it *may* become a reality *because* of openness.
The existence itself of such project is the topic here, not his *current* status.

Which is, I think, the main point of the article.
Check title again.

Can we stop believing in the million man army fallacy.

Most successful open source projects are funded.
