    I've noted that many of the new homebrew apps here on PreCentral are listed as closed source. As I understand the GPL license used by Palm, wouldn't any application incorporating Palm's open source elements be required to be open source as well? Does that mean that the apps listing themselves as closed source (a) don't incorporate any of those open source elements or (b) do but the developers didn't get the licensing right or (c) I'm just wrong about all of this? Thanks. {ProfJonathan}

    I'm not a lawyer, but as far as I know dynamic linking is allowed with GPL which I guess you can say is the case with webos applications. (Widgets etc. are not included in the application but rather "linked" in at runtime).

    Add: This usually means that there will be a charge for usage of the app later on...by someone down the chain.
