Well, theres an update to that.

To those who voiced their disappointment and retained a civil tone, we
empathize with you. We appreciate all of the passion from the community, we again want to re-iterate that this was a very tough decision for us. We want to clarify a couple of points:
* Songbird remains open source. The code is mirrored from our working tree and available at http://publicsvn.songbirdnest.com/
* We are maintaining our Linux build infrastructure and will ensure that it continues to compile and run the unit-test suite. http://buildbot.songbirdnest.com/
* Nightly Linux builds will remain available at http://developer.songbirdnest.com/builds/trunk/latest/
* [b]We have in house developers that use Linux every day and they will keep developing Songbird on Linux.[/b]
