Philosophical issues aside, the most relevant question, and what I haven't seen 
anyone else asking, is whether this has been reported to the appropriate rights 
holders and what actions are being taken to get the Astra folks into 

I'm willing to bet that if Astra had improperly included software from one of 
those other O/S makers, there wouldn't be as much debate as there would be 
lawyers making phone calls....

Debate about Free vs Open, or the merits of the GPL, etc. is IRRELEVANT - 
philosophy isn't the question, as like the philosophy / license or not, the 
software in question IS under the GPL, so the only two questions are 1. Are 
they violating it? 2. If they are, what is being done to get them into
