Well, I had to check and sure enough, Amazon’s new Kindle device is powered by Linux. Obvious really – and what’s equally obvious is that there will spring forth a developer community. Given that Amazon has release the tarball it seems unlikely they’re locking things down too hard. While it may not be the prettiest kid on the block, it’ll be interesting to see what it spawns.
I did think about registering kindlehacks.com, but then I thought better 🙂
