I'm the last to know: Linux powers the Kindle

The Kindle runs Linux...who knew?

Roy Schestowitz pointed to this post about the Kindle's operating system today: Linux. I didn't know that. Somehow I missed the memo last year when Robert Love wrote about his discovery of Linux at the heart of the Kindle.

I had written about how the Kindle's content strategy reminded me of open source, but I had no idea that the software running the device was open source. One more reason to want my Kindle back.
