Hmm, not exactly - you can always ask for the source code, only if they refuse 
to give it to you for a reasonable fee (if you have the binary packages and 
only if) they'll break the GPL. Althoug this abstract
"The evaluation user agrees to either obtain a valid license from Tomahawk 
Computers Pte Ltd, Singapore, before the expiry of the evaluation period OR 
remove the software completely from the computer after the expiry of the 
evaluation period." could break the GPL, you have to remove only their 
proprietary software which could be included on the disc, they can't bind 
this clause to the GPL AFAIK...
