Should Google rejoin the Linux Kernel Community?

    Is Android is going down a dead end?

    When will Google rejoin the Linux kernel community?

    Is it Goodle's business model (spyware by any other name?) clashes with the ethics of the open source community?

    I don't necessarily think that Android is going down a dead end... though I do think that the Linux community is waaaaay too fragmented for it's own good.

    Thanks Martimus.

    I read this in Wikipedia from Znet:

    "But now they are stuck. Companies with Android-specific platform and drivers cannot contribute upstream, which causes these companies a much larger maintenance and development cycle."

    btw I love your tag line!! LoL
