This is whole point of the Zii, make some cool open source hardware and give consumers choice of OS- let builders package, compile, and market their own versions of the Zii. How is this a bad thing? Not too different than the PC hardware market. Buy an motherboard and put whatever the hell OS you want on it. I think its a fresh approach to the PMP market and looking forward to how this thing is going to pan out.
