According to Michael Larabel at Phoronix.com, "the source-code for
SplashTop isn't available for download; however, complying with the
terms of the GNU GPL license, developers that email DeviceVM for the
source-code can have a CD mailed to them. In the coming months the
source-code will be publicly available on the Internet."

It seems kind of silly for them to only offer CDs for now, but there
you have it.  I'm sure that within a day of the CDs being mailed out
we will see the source reposted online...
