Kindle Source code online?!?
Above is a link that states it's the source code to all models of Kindle (Kindle 1, 2, 3, DX)
I hadn't realized Amazon released the source.
From reading elsewhere on the boards I've found that Amazon now keeps things under control by checking firmware updates against signed keys. I was just surprised even this much open-ness existed.

Note that you can also go into settings, press Menu then select Legal where you can browse through the names and licences of all the open source / free software in the kindle (88 pages of attributions and licences).

It has the source code for all open source software they used/changed in Kindle (like the Linux kernel). They don't release the source code for their proprietary software (which includes most of the interesting stuff).
