LXer: Amazon Releases Kindle Linux Source Code

Published at LXer:

Amazon has announced the release of the source code for all their Kindle products. The basic underpinnings are Linux kernel 2.6.22that includes E-ink drivers, Kindle-specific hardware drivers, and probably some other Kindle-specific hardware patches. There are no specific licenses mentioned on the page but it should be safe to assume all of the code is released under the GPL since all of the modified packages are also GPL and Amazon isnít releasing these as binary modules/blobs.
