"[James E LaBarre][not closed enough]
VZW must have realized they couldn't break & lobotomize LiMo enough for their liking. Bob forbid they should have an unbroken phone that was affordable, usable, and designed sometime within the last decade.

"[Dave Lane] [MS-PL != GPL]
They're not changing it with that license, but they're trying to muddy the waters. The MS-PL (they use "Public License" to make it sound superficially like the "General Public License"). If you look at the FSF site, you'll see that they don't consider the MS-PL to be GPL compatible and discourage its use. MS would dearly love to pull an Apple, i.e. grab major BSD-like licensed projects and wrap them into their own proprietary codebase. Namely, they'd love to get the open source community to do their R&D for them for free."
