I assume that is just the OS source code released under the GPL? Or is it the real-deal, expect a letter from Amazon lawyers for DLing it it source code?

May I ask you where you got the link?

Somehow I believe the firmware upgrade will happen OTA, given all that Whispernet talk.

Can they legally do that? After all, you paid the money and it's your Kindle device. You alone should be allowed to decide whether or not to upgrade the software (after all, a change in software can change the functionality of the device).
