I guess I should read the mailing lists more often. Food for thought, not
even android is GPL.  Since this thread, I have found their SDK license.
I'm not a lawyer so it is thoroughly confusing to me.  Some things seem to
be open source and others are not. If I read their license right, their
Plazma OS (which is linux based) is not open source... which to me IS a GPL
violation.  Again.. not a lawyer.  I'm thinking of sending the license on to
an acquaintance at the FSF and getting his read.  If anyone is interested,
I'll update here.  If not, I won't.
