Dell will open source Streak code

Dell has promised to open source its Streak code, where Dell’s official blogger Lionel Menchaca stressed that the Texas-based company will adapt to “all applicable requirements” in due time. This would fit in perfectly with the GNU Public License (GPL) of Android 1.6 that sees action in the Dell Streak, considering it is based on a Linux kernel and by law requires it to be open-source. There is no deadline required for when said code must be published though, but we are going on a limb here to assume that such code will be available almost immediately or shortly before any hardware or software ships. Could this mean we will be seeing user customized skins and user interfaces for the Streak in the future?
