Well, there you go. For anyone with the technical knowledge of what those packages are and do, it should be clear now what is and isn't opensource about webOS.

I still think it is cool how OSS works. Use what you want...., but you gotta give it back.

Hey Palm! Where's my PDA with Wifi and phone capabilities?
