    Uh.. I think the intention was for you to click the links. That and the secondary underlying message as well. ;)

    if you put quotes around something in a google search it wont break it up and search for each word individually

    well the spaces seperate the words, you could easily come up with things that just include all those words but out of order and seperated by countless other words, if you do "what is linux kernel" with the quotes you will come up with things that include that phrase as is, if it said "what linux kernel is" that wont show up

    Ok from what I been able to piece together , you fine gentlemen do more than make apps...you design os from a stock model that is open source that run apps.So u must have a jvm and android sdk and sumthing like eclispe just for starters or did I make a false assumption here???

    android sdk and eclipse no. jvm yes. cyanogenmod just requires the tools to compile java(jvm) and c code(i dont remember what its called but i think it started with a g lol) the cm code has everything else you need built in. compiling mods for stock roms only really requires jvm, apktool, the android kitchen, and either a photo editor, a good text editor, or both
