They are required to release the source to modified GPLed products that don't belong to them. That is the whole point of the GPL. Just because they put something in a pretty package doese not mean they own them. If Lindows doese not want to release the source code to these modified GPLed programs they can always start from scratch and write there own stuff. Lindows is just an atemped for some guy to get rich quick of other peoples work.
