My android phone (G1) using the Cyanogen mod from
http://www.cyanogenmod.com can tether via wifi, bluetooth, or usb. Linux
is the OS, android is the user front-end to the stuff. Only google's
apps are proprietary, and the only one that comes to mid right now is
gmail. (I'm sure there are others.)

I wish the G1 had more CPU power, probably would be solved by the Nexus
One, which Cyanogenmod has an OS for that gives it all the good stuff I
have now.
