I have to admit the only reason I bought an Archos was because of
Rockbox. I had read about the awfull firmware and it would allow me to tinker
too. I would definatly consider getting an AV model if it was 'tinkerable'

free time for your mp3 player, how about a little pro-bono advice?

<#include rant.h>

1)Rockbox is the only thing that makes Archos a contender on the mp3


2)I will not buy another Archos product and I will discourage everyone I

can from buying ANY Archos product if they continue to insult user code

development. Even their threats to you make me want to go back to a

Creative device, especially since they took the PlayCenter out of the

file transfer loop, hmmm...

How else do you think Microsoft is allowed to undermine the cultural and

technological development by forcing the world to use its POS software?

They aren't around because their products are reliable and pleasant to

work with.
