Maybe "Open Source" Cars Aren't So Crazy After All
| Another example appears to be the new 'google phone' (G1 or Android). You can
| download several gigs of source code now, appropriately licensed, so that the
| code can be called 'open source' under the OSI's definition. But apparently
| you can't yet modify that code and install the modified binaries to your own
| The new GPL v3 tries to address this issue by requiring (under certain
| circumstances) that GPL v3'd code be installable on devices with which it is
| shipped. But to the best of my knowledge no other license is yet requiring
| this, and the v3 is not yet widespread enough to put a serious dent in this
Google Chrome Q&A

| Via email, I’ve asked Google group product manager Brian Rakowski a couple of

| Does Google have any time frame for the release of the Mac and Linux versions
| of Chrome?
| We’re working on it, track progress in the open source project!
