> TheRegister: Steve Jobs vindicated: Google Android isn't open
I don't want to defend Google, and calling Honeycomb OSS is certainly not in order either.
But can you take iOS release-1 and put it on cheap competitor's devices? I run an Android version improved by 3rd parties (core code, not only add-ons). How is that possible with Apples stuff again?
Or what about patched versions of Windows for mobiles stuff? Is it being endorsed?
It is certainly still in a different league than any of the others. Pure OSS? Heck no.
