About the Linux stack: it's listed on the linux BT stack site firms that use Linux + BlueZ on their devices, like Nokia or TomTom. These ones have paid the BlueTooth SIG, you can search BlueZ on the SIG web site to check that.
But... not all PC constructors, nor the FSF has paid for the usage of the stack on PC. So it comes to my mind this: the distribution and the usage of the software (the BT stack so) seems to be possible if no incomes are made with it. The Linux BT stack is distributed as an OpenSource software under the GPL license.
Now, Nokia or TomTom use it also, but make incomes by selling their devices.
I don't know the matter and content of the discution between Chris and the SIG, but Chris, have you talked about this fact with them?
In this case, the code of the BT stack shall be freely distributed and not included with the MorphOS iso (not free, for the 2.x).
And also, maybe the code shall be open-sourced...
Don't know... We should ask to the SIG to have the final word.
Note: it seems that Samsung has paid for the Stack qualification.
And now... next project!
