That's something that bothers me slighly. Imagine Jukeboxes were
shipped with Rockbox. Will the programmers of the original firmware be
sacked? Why should Archos pay them? They can sell Jukboxes anyway.
Might Rockbox destroy jobs? Does Rockbox endanger the future of little
sweet innocent programmers children?
