Contributed by: sde

Contributed by: sde

Linux just keeps popping up on many of the popular gadgets that are hogging the limelight nowadays. Some are quite conspicuous about it, like the Android phone that is being developed by a group that makes it very obvious, calling themselves the Open Handset Alliance.

Thursday, October 16 2008 @ 02:53 PM EDT
