Ars Technica uses a blog posting
from Linux Foundation executive director Jim Zemlin as a jumping off point to look
at mobile Linux vs. Apple's iPhone and iPad. "'It has been impossible for an independent open source developer such as Funambol to access certain basic parts of iPhone (such as the calendar, and presumably this is the same on iPad) whereas on Android, there are no similar limitations,' he [Hal Steger, the VP of marketing at Funambol] told us in an e-mail. He thinks that Apple needs to reach out to open source software developers and loosen its restrictions on the iPhone software platform.
