[maemo-users] Any news on N9 release?

One thing I really would object is lining up googloids (androids) with
really open source maemo. Googloids have a big piece of kernel which is
closed code. This part is neither documented nor otherwise described as to
what that is doing on "your" device. Therefore, I personally consider all
googloids (as well as other derivatives of open source systems/kernels:
apple to mention one) NOT open source systems.

This objection is highly motivated by the thought I repeat after a clever
person: security can only be where the source code is open (therefore:
only open source systems are thrust worthy).

Sorry for speaking in dissonance with others. Someone had to say that...
