Are the Google bashers happy yet?

Anytime Google comes up theres always somebody asking about them giving code back to the community (even though forcing that upon them is against the spirit of the GPL to begin with.). Now they have given the community an entire mobile phone OS stack and you STILL have people asking about contributions. Theres your contribution right there. And on top of that it appears that they have taken it all a step further an introduced an OS with a managed code app and UI layer. Thats where MS wants to go with .Net and where half the Linux community will want to go AFTER they see MS do it *smh*....or they'll let Mono continue to seep in. Google basically made the Java integration for you....or at least a roadmap.
