StarOS Wireless Router violates GPL

Anonymous Patron writes “It seems that StarOS might be in violation of the GPL. What’s interesting is that they provide links to all the GPL and BSD software they use in their Station Router (a commercial Wireless router) but there is no source for the modifications they made to the linux kernel which prevent you from seeing kernel messages when it boots and also stops you from mounting the root filesystem outside of StarOS and of course they don’t give you a shell. Is this legal? The GPL forbids use of GPL’ed code in closed-source, proprietary software.”

Note from Bill Drew: “Anonymous Patron” does not offer any documentation on this issue just speculation.
