While these phones are running a customized version of the GPL'ed Linux kernel, HTC has been unwilling to provide the corresponding source code for the HTC Desire's Linux kernel for nearly a month now. Unfortunately, HTC already have a well-known history of GPL violations with no apparent signs of any improvement.
