I wondered the same thing myself. The Nokia 770 has adopted Debian to create
a mobile operating system that is quite nifty. However, to what extent will
it be available for others to use? Will it require a licence to be purchased
from Nokia? And if so, how legal/ethical is that? I don't know the answer,
but this sounds like Google to me.
Don't get your hopes up. They primarily give API-related code. You can't
penetrate their valuable bits of code.
