Not sure, how many people already know or realise that most of the cellphones sold today are based on Open Source.

  • Android is the fastest growing Operating System for phones is based on Linux.
  • Nokia’s N900 platform runs Linux too.
  • Palm’s (now acquired by HP) WebOS is based on Linux too.
  • Symbian the most popular phone operating system is now Open Source.
  • iPhone is based on a BSD kernel which is also Open Source.

Is there still room for proprietary operating systems?
