Free Zune for devels

Hi

I just read an article on linux.com from Robin Miller. He made a trip to
microsoft and got an Zune:

"So here's the deal: If you want to either install Linux on a Zune or write a
utility to make a Zune Linux-compatible, email editors_at_ostg.com and tell us
why we should give this free Zune to you. The person we deem most likely to
put it to good use, based on previous development track record and all-around
desire, will get this Zune to have, hold, use as a development platform, and
otherwise do with as he or she wishes."
and
"The only limitations we're imposing are:
You must be in a country where you can receive postal-mailed packages from the
US.
If there are customs hassles or duties, you must take care of them at your
end."

I think Rockbox on a Zune could probably make it linux compliant?

Well the whole article is at:

I really don't know if it is a good idea to put rockbox on the zune, but well
you decide.
