I would guess that it has to do something with the plugins for that stuff. I
think its rediculous that you've bought the hardware but they want you to
pay for the software plugins to use it. If his OS makes use of those peices
of hardware without people paying money to archos then thats probably what
the deal is. I say boohoo to archos for doing something like that to begin
with.

I have already done that, repeatedly. But he has so far declined.

We don't know what Archos' complaint against AVOS is, since it is not
published (and he says he is not allowed to publish it). Before we know more
details, I think we should be wary of drawing conclusions.
