LXer: Amazon Kindle powered by Linux 2.6.22, FSF not impressed

Published at LXer:

Amazon is now making new source code available for its Amazon Kindle. Basically what it represents is Amazon's responsibility to make the GPL licensed source code that is used in the Kindle available to others. That's part of the GPL license and Amazon is doing its part. Digging into the code that Amazon is now making available provides some really interesting insight into the underlying structure of the Kindle. For one, Kindle (at least the DX) is using a modified Linux 2.6.22 kernel
