Kindle Source code online?!?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/custom...deId=200203720

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.

They have to release the source as they used components in the Kindle that were licensed under various open source licenses.

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).
