    Please remind me how Android isn't open source.
    The only parts of Android that aren't open source are some of the drivers, firmware, and the actual Google apps (like Maps, Earth, Navigation, etc).
    Even their kernel changes away slowly being adopted into mainline (albeit, modified like the very recent autosleep pull).

    Valve's employee handbook is amazing.

    It helps you to understand how there still isn't a Half Life 3 yet, and why Valve Time exists.

    This comment is a fake. I was the one who sent it to AnonymousCoward. I was trolling AnonymousCoward, but I didn't think he'd actually make a post out if it. Anyway it's fake, sorry guys for trolling you

    Yeah, I sure hope no company ever gets control of the chrome codebase... you know, the google chrome codebase. Ran by google. The company. That runs the chrome codebase.

    And nobody's forcing you to install steam on Linux. There's already tons of proprietary closed source software for Linux, some even have (gasp) DRM! Tell me, are you required to install them along with Linux? And if a company does "subvert" an open source project (which is impossible) and you don't like the changes they're making? So fucking what? Fork it and either don't take anything from them or only put in the code you do like from them. That's how open source works. That's how it's always worked. There is literally no other way FOR it to work.

    but when I put [email protected] .... :


    Another FAKE from bullshit Phrononix
    ... seriously? You think it's fake because a private company doesn't allow random ip's to ping their mail servers? Really?

    Try googling the email address, lots of people contact gave at this address and receive replies.

    I'm a little weird... I actually think Android is an example of a Linux success story.

    Wait, wait, wait, who are you to tell who's allowed to use linux? If a company wants to use linux (for whatever reason) the company IS a user! Valve wants to use linux (as a target), so Valve IS a user of linux...
