I think the point Jean meant to make is that Android platform per se isn't
closed, even if the unfortunate situation is that many vendors ship a lot of
closed code, mainly drivers (tho situation with closed drivers is slowly
improving, Google seem to be working on that).

The link Jean posted is just one of (free and open source) derivatives of
Android platform. The other one very popular comes to mind was CyanogenMod,
which later was succeeded by LineageOS.
